doesnt sony make the 16mp sensor in the k5, k-01, a55,a37,a57, nex5n, D7k, and others? how is it sony isnt responsible for the sensor NR?

Sony is not one small company like Pentax, which is now basically a camera brand of Ricoh. Sensors are made by Sony's semiconductor division. The sensor based noise cancellation is normal for all CMOS sensor. Pentax, Nikon, and Sony's camera division don't control on how the sensor operates internally.

I was specifically responding to the RAW NR that the bionz imaging processor applied to A700, A850, and A900. With the firmware 4, the user could turn off the RAW NR on A700, and this feature was already optional on A850 and A900
