Like I said...lets mark this page and take a look 5 years from now.

yup nikon said FF was needless and dumb right up until the night before they introduced FF

and twill be the same with Canon and 22MP

and if canon's lenses are optimized for 20MP FF at most, then I guess they must all suck on all of their APS-C cams no?

I have no idea what you think is going to happen in 5 years that will increase my resolution needs, unless I switch from weddings to landscape / studio which would completely change my needs.

When we had 8mp, I was resolution restricted. Prints were "OK" as they could be a 100dpi or 200dpi depending on size. Same with 12mp, although there were fewer issues.

However, at 22mp, resolution is no longer an issue for the work I do, so why do you think my resolution needs will increase? What is going to happen? are we going to suddenly start printing at 400dpi or 500 dpi because our eyes are going to evolve to see more detail? Are screens going to quadruple in resolution? I hardly ever crop and my crop habits haven't changed in 10 years. More resolution for me is going to do three things:
* Increase my storage costs
* Slow down my editing
* Not benefit me in any way whatsoever

What is it then that's going to happen that will bring about this change in resolution requirement? Seriously?

* Resolution, for my work, is a problem that is completely solved. I don't need any more.
* High ISO is nearly solved - another 2 stops and I'll have all I ever need.
* AF is nearly solved - another 2 stops of AF sensitivity and I won't need anything more.
* Low ISO shadow quality is a benefit occasionally and on Canon sensors has a way to go, but it's not something I personally need much at all.

Just because you want / need something, doesn't mean that others do. We all do different work...

The way photos are displayed.

1) Larger high resolution monitors. Maybe not in 5 years, but is it really that difficult to imagine technology for displays that can cover a full wall with fine resolution.

2) Active zooming by the viewer. Bandwidth in mobile devices will enable high res images to be shared and actively zoomed by the viewer.

So, the reason I need "46MP" is so users can have wall sized photos at high res and they will need to zoom into more than 22MP of detail over the internet so they can pixel peep (and all photographers will let them do that)? Or that our eyes will require super high res monitors suddenly?

Was that it? Seriously? lol

I'll stick with 22MP thanks It's the sweet spot for my work. I'm not saying it is for others, but for me it's more than enough

Technology advances. Clients expectations change. Who knows where we will be in 5 years time. I know today I could use more pixels for my printing needs. Maybe tomorrow you will also, depending what the viewing device of tomorrow brings us. Technology does not stand still and digital image technology is still in it's infancy stage.

Of course it does. However, what is going to happen that means 22MP will be unaccepable and "46MP" will be needed?

I look forward a lot, but I don't see anything that is going to make that happen within the wedding market.

I am not trying to convince you that you need more, just saying that your clients expectations may be different in the future.

I hope you won't laugh in the face of your clients and say that 22 MP is plenty if they want high resolution images to play with.

Canonrumors just posted that the new 3D with 46 MP sensor will be presented at PhotoPlus Expo in NY City in October. As I predicted, it is coming, we will see .

Please be more than a megapixel increase. Low ISO DR, shadow noise, color improvement, something other than just megapixels.

Yes, it really needs to be more than just a mash of pixels. And it will need to be a decent price.

If Canon can pull off a high MP/DR sensor, I won't be surprised to see the 5D3 revised in two years or less from its introduction. So even if this rumored 3D is at $6000 or more, there may be a trickle-down to lower models in short order.

It is interesting to note that the Caonorumors post has "Canon 3D" in the post title, but the picture they show has "Canon 5DX" showing on the photo. So who knows what the name might be if the camera is real.

Also note that the 1DX got announced at the up coming PhotoPlus Expo show a year ago, but took about 8 months after that to actually be delivered. Could be that a new Canon high resolution body may follow a similar delayed delivery cycle, which would not be a very good way to try to "answer" Nikon.

Please let it come so you can have a thread showing how you were the single person who predicted this camera coming. Then we can all go back to our regular lives

And that post on CR is listed CR1, meaning it could just be a random guy on the internet sending in some info for fun...was it you maybe??
