The rumor mills are buzzing that Nikon's newest DSLR, the "D800", is going to be announced on the Eve of Feb 7th. There is still speculation about what the final file size will be but according to Nikon Rumors this could be the first leaked image off the camera. Found on Shinji Watanabe's flickr stream, the file has a rather unique file dimension at 7360 x 4912 leading one to believe the yet to be announced Nikon camera might indeed contain a 36 megapixel sensor.
Photographers have wondered when DSLR makers like Nikon and Canon would enter into the Medium Format market. And while any camera with a 35mm sensor wouldn't be considered a true "medium format" camera, files with this much resolution would definitely produce quality images similar to what photographers have been doing with Mamiya and Hasselblad. What do you guys think, is this the real deal? And furthermore, what do you think of the quality of this leaked file?
