expensive strategy

That is going to be one expensive sensor for Sony then - wonder how much they think they will sell in their own bodys. Also, don't Sony and Nikon have a long business relation in terms of 'sensor pooling'?

How about this pure imaginary bit: Nikon wasn't happy with the sensor Sony made (no movie function, live view, noisy, in sum worse than what the new Canon sensor is hoped to be) and now have to design one themselves.
