It isn't in Sony's interest
In reply to Everdog, May 20, 2011

To do anything like run Nikon out of business. They aren't charging a huge premium on their sensors and Nikon has other possible suppliers. Yes Sony makes some money off of the Nikon and Pentax DSLRs that use their sensors, but they have made money off compacts for a long long time...

Samsung, Fuji, Micron, Sigma, and others are all still suppliers. Most advances in semicondutors are written up in journals so sony could be first to do something but they hardly have a monopoly most of the time. (Sometimes patents but yeah).
