Actually, this is not very surprising. The megapixel race have gone to sleep until Nikon’s D800 and the rumored 75MP new Canon woke it up again.
Last week we did a quick poll to see what should camera makers focus on. Here are the results. I know that DIYP is not statistically a valid group, but I do think that with 1.000 votes it represents the general direction in which the wind is blowing.
With a clear 60.37% of the votes photographers want Better Low Light Performance
Coming in second with 22.05% is Improved Focusing
More Megapixels came in last with only 1.42% of the votes.
We have had 5.69% wanting better video and 10% wanted other stuff, check out the comments on the original post.
