Well, the Nikon DX2 is at 12.2 megapixels and the Canon EOS 1D Digital SLR is already at 16 megapixels. Neither are at prices that the average can afford...>USD 5K. However, that is an indication of where the future is going. Both are SLR cameras that share the whole family of lenses with their film camera counterparts.

I have noted that the press photographers at even our local (weekly or 2X week) newspapers have gone completely to digital cameras for production work. The last time I had my picture taken they used a high end Nikon. For this work, digitals save time and production costs and that saves money.
