Subject: Would you go from D3S to next generation camera?

Just curious. The D3S renders such wonderful image that I was thinking how many would actually move to a next generation camera if it Only offered 16 or 24 MP with similar results as the D3S. I don't think I would personally move from 12 to 16 but 24 may sound tempting.

What are your thoughts?

No, because there's no need for me to do so. If the need arises because of some killer feature in a new camera - besides more MP's - that would earn me more money, then I might reconsider. But it would be a business decision, not a gear indulgence. The D3s is a more than profitable tool to use and the need to "always have the best" is a fools gambit I opted out of years ago. As far as 12mp's vs. 24 mp's, I've not been able to compare head-to-head the same shot (same light, lens, etc) made with the D3s vs. D3x, but when I look at a D3s image made with a prime, upsampled to the same pixel dimensions as a D3x I'm stunned at how clean and beautiful the file is. No need for more MP's here.

I love my d3s as it is now. I am concerned abt the heaviness of it. Recently i bought the fuji x100 and i am amazed with its results. I definetley will opt for a lighter system provided it doest not compromise my d3s quality.
