    50Mpix. At this rate by the end of the year the minimum standard is going to be 36.

    It's not that I mind an increase but the Mpix competition doesn't seem to originate in consumer demands. Not being Sony specific in this, it does make me wonder if it is the cheaper/easier way manufacturers try to outshine the rest. Or maybe it is the consumer and more Mpix simply sells better.

    Personally I like 24 mp. I don't want to have to provide more storage space, bigger Memory Cards, and then wait forever for the files to download....or upload as the case may be. But the improvement in image may make me change my mind. @J-see

    More megapixels for the same shot has plenty an advantage if more is at the same time better quality. Storage size increases but I'd not mind that too much. Their sensors are pretty darn good, I experience that daily and some of their lenses perform exceptionally well if I compare with my averages.

    But of all the things on my preference list, megapixels isn't on top.

    Sony has done an excellent job with dense sensors. They make a 20 Mp Cx senor with better ISO performance than the 16 Mp in the Nikon 1 Cx. That would be about 60 Mp Fx!

    @Rick M, and @J-see - I can't figure out how Sony can produce better sensors than Nikon or Canon? I mean cameras haven't really been the bread and butter of Sony for years. Nikon and Canon on the other hand have been in the camera business for years and it has been their bread and butter. Why?

    I wouldn't know either. It's the same with Canon. It used to be THE company in the past but when I look at their cams purely what they technically deliver, I can't say they are still impressive.

    Maybe they all had it too easy for too many years and for too long expected that to last forever.

    Well....in their defense, they did handle the tranistion from film to digital very well, unlike Kodak....I used to live near Rochester, NY, where Kodaks HQ is. They are a shell of what they used to be. Lots and lots of layoffs. The name is the only thing left. Not a good transition for them.

    I thought SONY made sensors for Nikon. And that means Nikon will soon have a 50MP camera.
    Nikon D800.....Sony A7RII.....Nikon D3300 (IR dedicated 590nm).....Sony A6000 APS-C........NEX 5T (IR dedicated 720nm) (and too many lenses)

    Maybe it is part of the digital era. Many dinosaurs of the past adjust slower to change than new who haven't known any differently. Past experience can easily become a disadvantage if it gets you stuck for too long in a "do as we used to do" mindset.
