So what next a D8000 with a 42 megapixel sensor and Expeed 5 processor?? Of course I know that it doesn't matter because it is the photographer that makes the picture not the camera (lol).

I understand the technology changes fast but this is amazing. When I bought my Canon AE1 I thought that it was incredible. Well it will be interesting to see where this roller coaster goes.

Sheesh, I would never want 42 megapixels! 24 is more than I personally want. Those are huge files shooting in raw and I don't foresee myself needing that kind of resolution. 16mp seems like a good balance to me though I've been doing just fine with 12mp for a while now.

Image quality looks better than on the D5100!

They've upped the Mps but is the sensor the same as the D3100? because the D7000/D5100 was supposed to have a superior sensor. Also it doesnt have a swivel LCD so I would wait to see what they do with the D5200.

If I were to choose right now I'd still take D7000 over this just because of some features like HSS and a focus motor in the camera body. MPs are not a big deal for most of us in practical usage.

I don't mind 'extra' megapixels to work with, I can crop and still get good detail. But if I was in the market to buy, I'd get the D7000. A bit of a price jump though.
