Re: likely D700 body 24mp Sony sensor

I expect sensor based on Sony sensor. I can not recall any sensor used in Nikon camera to be directly used in any other manufacturer's camera. There always were some modifications of the basic sensor used in Nikon cameras.

Or they skip the $6000 step and go the D700 body/24mp Sony sensor
route. I doubt that anybody now after the Sony and Canon announcement
still would pay $6000. The difference buys a lot of first class
optics.

This way they could leave the upper segment for their rumored (small)
medium format body and lens line.

The 5DMKII has the same sensor as the $8000 EOS-1Ds Mark III
according to Thom BTW. "The only change in the 5DII is to the Bayer
layers to make them more transmissive".
