Perchance to dream.....
I'm also happy to see the mp count staying relatively low, though I don't see the lenses being an issue with a 36mp full frame camera as they cope with the 18mp cropped which have a higher pixel density. For me the resolution of the mkII is fine so I don't need more but the claimed two stop improvement in high ISO performance would be good. I often shoot at ISO3200 with no NR and can go to 6400 with a bit of processing, two stops better would almost remove the need for a flash.
