couple of assumptions...

I agree the sensors may be cousins but it assumes that the D300 sensor is NOT Nikon designed as for example the D3 sensor is, we have yet no confirmation for this assumption. If it is a Nikon design it is not likely to be related to the alpha sensor even if Sony is the one that produced it for Nikon. Commonality of production doesn't imply commonality of design in standard chip fabrication (in the same way that a contractor can build a house weather it is designed by architect A or architect B, all he needs to build either are the blue prints).

As for your assertion of image quality differences, what about the announced camera/sensor combination would give you the indication that the alpha will offer better IQ?
