    After D3X, first a 20mp D800 then 24mp D900 will possibly fololw, like the scenario after 12mp D2x (flagship of an era). First 10mp D200 came, then 12mp D300. Though they shared the same pixel count, sensors were different. Different base-ISO, different noise, addition of live-view, etc. Between D800 & D900, a D4 (same high-ISO properties of D3, but 18mp) announcement may be expected. Plausible, isn’t it? Come on Nikon, bring us that new baby D800 at Feb 21 for an affordable price!
