Has anyone ever tried to make a pano from 39Mp files? My MBP with 3Gb, 2.2, etc. comes to a grinding halt if I stitch more than 6 images

I have stitched 15 images (all shot with my p45) on my MBP SR 2.4 with 4Gb ram and it never missed a beat.  Granted it took a little while but all in all fairly fast.  I also switched out my hard drive for a new fast 7200 200GB Toshiba - there was a noticeable speed improvement.

My MBP is an older version that is apparently somewhat slower, I do have a 100GB 7200RPM drive in it. (maybe I am too impatient as well). I see I mentioned 3Gb, it has 2Gb! Which is the max for this model I believe.

Ah... well my wife is in need for a new laptop so as soon as quadcore MBP's hit the market I will give my wife a present

The big issue is the price of the sensor. I got a price from Kodak on a 22MP sensor a while ago and even in quantity the price was around $5K, iirc, so you can easily imagine that a ZD costs $6K+ to build.

I think you could be right. One story I remember was that Mamiya committed to purchasing a rather large number of sensors in order to get a good price: it might be then that with the 22MP sensors already payed for, Mamiya is now selling at a profit compared to the alternative throwing away the sensors, but at too low a price to be feasible when new sensors must be purchased for a newer model. Using your numbers, if Mamiya has already payed the $5000 sensor cost, they are $2000 better off making a product that costs an additional $6,000 to make beyond sensor cost and selling it for $8,000, but this would overall simply be reducing the loss from $5,000 per sensor if written off to $3,000 per sensor.
