Or Nikon doesn't want it...

The Alpha 900 team was at PhotoPlus last week, and they let an
interesting tidbit slip... They claim that they convinced the sensor
division at Sony (the folks at PhotoPlus were camera designers) NOT
to sell the A900 sensor to anyone, in order to build Sony's camera
market share....

Or Nikon doesn't want it (it's inferior to the 12MP sensor on many fronts and Nikon probably could design a better one) and Sony PR folk were wise enough to turn it into a triumph?

Let's try and see through the marketing drivel, shall we?
