I hope this is cms. Let's not be sloppy about units. I think if you are going to this level of accuracy you might as well have an irrational number which would be more exotic and have a deep inner meaning.

The whole system is based on vidicon tubes measured in an ancient multi base number imperial  measurement system so it is all crazy anyway and the perfect 1" has a cult following in photo circles.

I think a 0.86539762" sensor would be the best. I am not sure why but that is the number that springs to mind. Pure instinct.

No rumors anymore?

I'm partial to the more universal 3.1415926535897932384 sensor.
