Good catch, Jim, and thank you.  The blackpoint clipping has been an annoyance to non-astrophotographers but the EXMOR sensors digital correction has taken care of color shifting - or, has been reported, shifts shadows slightly blue, which is rather less perceptible than the green of the Toshiba sensor. Still, it's clear that Sony rules the roost for sensor robustness.

One could speculate that it could be in a position to starve competitors for sensor technology, but that would be stupid, because it derives far more profit from selling sensors to its camera system competitors than from sales of directly competitive cameras.  Still, the D7100's sensor sure seems to me to be more a response to lack of availability of new-tech 24MP sensors from Sony for Nikon's update schedule rather than a preferred choice...the D5300 sensor appears to be EXMOR, and newer tech, that permits blackpoint preservation without degradation of DR. But Sony themselves are using the absolute latest tech, with on-sensor PDAF. We'll see if Nikon gets that, or is interested.
