I think this inaccurate

Given Fuji don't own a fab, and Nikon seem to be perfectly
capable of designing class leading camera sensors on their own, what
possible benefit is there for Nikon?

I believe Fujifilm has a chip fab, though they only make CCD sensors
they have made the chips for all their DSLRs

Nikon buying this part of Fujifilm makes a great deal of sense, particularly now that Sony has entered the DSLR market

Fujifilm's DSLRs have always been based on Nikon bodies & I much prefer what the Fujifilm sensors deliver in DR/tonality/color to Sony

I don't know if this is going to come to pass, but I think it would be great for Nikon if it did
