Nikon seems to have it's eggs put on Sony, NEC and Matsushita

Matsushita is Panasonic. (I don't mean it's part of Panasonic, it is Panasonic),

Correct, I know very well, my wife worked there (Matsushita) at marketing (Osaka)

maybe they are doing foundry work for Nikon, but one has to wonder at your source of information.

My source of info is very trustworthy I don't say they (Matsushita or NEC) produce the new sensor, I think it will be almost certainly Sony, 'their' 36MP sensor seems to be true. As always they will produce it completely by Nikon specification. And they have recent experience with pixel binning Nikon seems to have (let it) done it in the past too...D1 series

I very much doubt if there is a single 18/36MP sensor, the binning idea doesn't make sense.

For me partly it does, but not in relation with Nikon I'm remembering an interesting sales explanation were some one of Phase Cameras' with in that time their new pixel plus technology (pixel binning) high MP 645 camera.

I also think 18MP is too conservative for the D4, especially given that the arguments people put for 18 (24 couldn't be processed fast enough) have gone away with the EXPEED 3.

18MP extreme high iso/high DR ultra fast camera, with both still and movie functionality absolutely a market for it..Can't say if it is big enough. Nikon does probable know more about the competition than we, and if that rumour is correct and that 18MP is coming, than it should be some kind of answer to that of the competition
