Probably this was the article...

I don't think Ricoh will want to bet their next line on high MP war, even if they really want to release their own FF....

It's a good thing that memory prices are going down and memory density going up. At this rate the 2 memory slots of the K-3 will be inadequate and obsolete; its FF successor will need 4! Or perhaps a built in hard disk... solid state, of course.

Not a problem, although, unfortunately, it shows that they are running out of ideas. The K3 is an improvement over the K5, but not because it has more megapixels. It is all the other features thrown in. Basically this is a full framed size K3 sensor. No reason I would buy a camera with this over a camera with the D800 sensor.

I don't understand, why would waiting for a 50MP sensor show Ricoh is "running out of ideas"? Perhaps Ricoh has everything in place for the K-FF, and were informed by Sony that 50MP is on the horizon.

Depending on performance, this could prove to be quite close to their existing MF sensor.
Other than that, I'd love to have an ultra high res. FF sensor for landscape and studio shots.
Beyond that, I wouldn't want the added hassles of shooting with anything above 24mp.

Samsung have now pushed APS-C to 28MP, where 24MP used to be the de-facto limit, so I guess Sony is just moving the slider up a notch now on FF, from 36MP to 50MP, just to show that that it can.

If Samsung's 28MP APS-C works OK, you can probably expect Sony to also release a APS-C camera with a 28MP or 30MP sensor in 2015 too.

This ride will not end. Before too long, we will all have 1 Gigapixel camera sensors in our mobile phones, let alone our cameras.

Has nothing to do with Ricoh. It shows that Sony doesn't have any obvious place to go from the D800 sensor. I had hoped for something more foveon-like with better colors/dynamic range. A move from 36 to 50 megapixels isn't problematic, it just doesn't make a huge difference. I don't really care if Ricoh releases a camera with this sensor or the D600 sensor (I would probably prefer the D600 sensor).

Could this be in the similar pixel density as the K-3 sensor in FF format? Even if it is available, I doubt Sony would let other camera makers use it before they have used it first in their own line of cameras.

In the future, we would need faster processor and bigger drive/storage...a possible conspiracy for the industry to drive for more sales?

Oh, now I see what you mean. I agree, I would like to see "better", rather than simply "more".
