Re: Is that really a Sony sensor as DxO says?

I though from some images of sensor that it was not a Sony design. Now results seem to indicate it indeed is the same as in the Nex7.

It is still different size and pixel size, so not the same. Also has lower QE than Sony - looks like Nikon can do pretty well with or without.

With a 14bit ADC system it may produce even better results (DR possibly, and tonal gradation) in a D400.

It has on-chip ADC, so likely to actually be 14 bit hardware, just using 12 bits.
