Re: Opposite: Nikon DUMPED A900 sensor!!!

Really? You know, I heard the opposite is true, from equally
reliable sources:

Nikon rejected Sony's terrible A900 sensor, it is not nearly up to
the quality standards that Nikon has demanded, especially now with
the 5D mk2 sensor on the market.

I'm more inclined to believe THAT story, looking at the Sony's
pathetic performance above ISO 400 in the DPR review.

Just stating an opinion! Being the Nikon forum, hopefully I won't
get mobbed for saying this...

I love it that Nikon has had a low noise sensor for all of one year, and now Nikon is the unequivocal voice of sensor quality. Gimme a break. If you're just using online web reviews as your basis for performance, than I'm not sure what to say.
