Sony use Nikon's steppers to make the sensors. Does anyone really
think Nikon don't get the option to use the finished products? It's a

product development. Nice try but no cigar.
Sensorly yours...

Yes, I don't think so. One of Nikon's major businesses (sometimes its major business) is supplying steppers. If they made a condition to their customers that they had an option on the output, they would sell none. This is the same case as the difference between Sony Semiconductor and Sony Imaging. Nikon has a huge amount to lose if its camera division dictated sales of its steppers.
