Different sensor

The following strings are in the D3's B-firmware file v1.10, starting
at offet 3'614'640:

6048x4032 24.4 M

Comparing this to the Sony announced commodity sensor:

  1. Total number of pixels 6236 (H) x 4124 (V) approx. 25.72M pixels

  2. Number of effective pixels 6104 (H) x 4064 (V) approx. 24.81M pixels

  3. Number of active pixels 6096 (H) x 4056 (V) approx. 24.73M pixels

Also this D3(X) firmware resolutions include the 5:4 aspect so I am quite confident it's a custom built sensor to Nikon's specification instead of that commodity Sony sensor.

Also in the rumor mill is a cheapo FF body in the work.
