topstuff: It's quite obvious that the sensor is Sony. To suggest otherwise is nonsense. It is totally illogical to imagine any other scenario, especially given the fact that Nikon have used Sony made sensors in the past.
But that is not the whole picture. Nikon will have their own processor and supporting tech architecture plumbed into the sensor. As a result, I think we can expect excellent IQ.
Nikon have already demonstrated with the D800 that they can make high MP sensors produce decent noise performance. The D800 is way too close to the 5D3 in noise performance than it should be considering it has 60% more pixels. The difference is not large. This means that the extra MP comes with little sacrifice in terms of noise.
Expect the cheap little D3200 to perform the same trick? Probably.
Well done Nikon.
Now over to you, Canon. What ya got ???
you think you're the sole genius, eh?
plastic ram: How about an ap? while it's available online - something designed for an ap would be great when travelling.
yupp, an app asap would be much appreciated!
