Nikon thinks the megapixels war is not yet over. Last week, they unveiled its refresh of its low-end DSLR the D3200 with a 24 megapixels sensor. This makes all its predecessor and hi-end siblings in the low resolution side. We feel that it is tricking both its competing brand and the mirrorless category. We also guess that this will be the trend and we expect that late this year when the D51xx and D7xxx will arrive it will in the same monstrous megapixels.
