Re: Sony has ISO 100, D300 starts at 200- can't be the same sensor

then, can it?

Also the Sony offers 1/3 stops from 3200 to 6400, the D300 only
offers a straight 3200 to 6400 HI 1 mode- if I remember correctly.

Have to wonder which is the better sensor.

I'm no expert but I read somewhere that the filters in front of the sensor can affect the "native ISO". For example the D70 and KM 7D/5D used the same Sony 6 MP sensor. The D70 started at ISO 200 and the KM cameras started at ISO 100 - apparently due to the filtering. Can anyone elaborate on this or am I full of it?
