Default Re: Need help with chosing a DSLR Camera

I read just the other day, I think it was on Mike Johnston's site, that there are some strong rumors that the D3X will be something like 18mp and will be a 1.1X crop (almost full frame), with shake absorbtion (a la Pentax and Sony/KM) built into the body. That would be interesting I think. I have heard some interesting rumors from people who should have good information about the next Pentax too. That information suggests that Pentax too will be coming out with a larger sensor, but not quite full frame too. Actually, not quite a 1.1X crop, but bigger than 1.5X. I think what we are seeing now is the end of the megapixel wars and the new war starting, which is one of sensor size. All very interesting.

I can't see Nikon coming out with a new lens mount: It would give little reason for existing users to stay with Nikon and I can't imagine them pushing their base towards Canon. For some, having to buy new lenses would certainly be such a push.
