I hope nikon really b*tch smacked them into reality with the d800. I think the megapickle race just launched into outer space with this one. Canon will have an offering, probably in the 40-45MP range, then i would expect sony (after they use the 36MP sensor) to take the technology used in the nex-7's sensor and apply that to full frame, creating a monster megapickle sensor. Maybe even Fuji could jump in on the fun, with their recent sensor tech I think they would produce an amazing high MP full frame sensor. I think nikon may have gone in over their heads on this one, the demand is way to much for them to keep up with, people on waiting lists possibly having to wait till November to have their cameras, it sucks. It will probably be over a year before the cameras are in stock somewhat consistently.
