Answer: 4 million
The current camera megapixel count was announced back a decade ago with the release of Nikon’s FX-E8200 with an eight megapixel crop sensor. So today, we’re just getting to the two megapixel end of the size spectrum.
In fact, we’re in the middle of something bigger than 4 million! On Oct. 31, 2016, the Nikon D7200 started shipping. You can read about how that camera works in this article.
We’re at the point where any camera can capture at least five megapixels, which means we all have something that is up for debate. For instance, the Canon EF100mm f/2L IS II USM Lens is now sold. While it’s currently one of the highest-profile lenses, it won’t be the first one to hit market with its six megapixel sensor with all its advantages… in just a couple of years! And the Nikon D4 Pro will be shipping later this year.
We did all the math
But we did all the math, using the Canon EF100mm f/2L IS II USM Lens and the Nikon D7200. Just because the Sigma was available at the time. So that means we got the answer you would expect, because of the size of those pixels (5 Mpix) you would hope for an 80-120mm lens could deliver about 30-40 megapixels. That’s a huge difference.
Still, a great many of you told us that if you look at the Canon version of that lens you’ll find that it’s one of the most popular lenses today… even though the Nikon D7200 has three sensors. So we chose to give you the answer we thought you would expect… not the one you think we would have given:
We did a comparison between the Canon EF100mm f/2L IS II USM Lens and the Nikon D7200 that compares the focal lengths and sensors of the two different cameras. Here’s why:
“It’s not about that. They have to stay in business. The owners are still good,” T.J. Ward said. “This is not to say that nothing’s going to change with them, but it just makes it that much more difficult for them to try to stay in business.”
