Technically you need 56MP FX to get to a 24MP DX crop, problem solved :-)Also technically the D8x0 produces a 15.36MP DX crop. Must be some marketing math to get to 16MP ;-)
Well if the DX is 36 that makes the FX about 80.....thats fine but once the FX matches the pixel density of the current DX for me that makes the one FX body dual format. Could be a good selling point for nikon to get people to upgrade to FX
Spraynpray: But if the D5 and other Nikon bodies go mirrorless that may change the relative fps speeds. Since mirrorless can do much faster fps so Nikon could do something like 30 fps on the FX sensor bodies and 15 fps on the DX sensor bodies. And interesting side effect of going mirrorless may be to eliminate the fps advantage of the D4 series bodies. The Nikon 1 J4 now does 20 fps with continuous auto focus and 60 fps with AF off.
I am interested in how many of us have made printed images at a size greater than 65" tall, or wide. Even at this size, there is no perceptible image degradation with the 36 MP D8X0 as I have done this image, exported at 360 dpi in tiff, at a size of 1.4 GB and seen it printed on non forgiving aluminum. I cannot imagine what is to be gained by going up 20 MP, other than possibly creating bragging rights.
