I want to quote the 1st post of the old topic http://nikonrumors.com/forum/topic.php?id=1077 optimaforever wrote: "The D40 was better than the D40x because it had 6Mp instead of 10Mp and therefore bigger photosites (in terms of density per mm2). Following the same logic, Nikon *could* produce a low Mp camera capable of high ISO performance similar to a D3S... ?! I guess this makes sense technically and I really think there's a potential market here. I'd be personally very interested in a camera with 6Mp resolution (A4 and even A3 proof) and ISO 102400 potential, with , say 6-8fps and 720p video ON A DX format. Mmmh... perhaps am I too optimistic? if the noise is low, 6Mp can easily give huge prints. Ken R was a big fan of the D40 and I tend to agree on this one."
