No, it is final image. For certain tasks current SONY 24 megapixel
sensor produces better images then anything sold under Nikon brand.
There are also situations when I will be using Canon 1D MkIII instead
of Nikon D3, and that is when I need crop factor, and relatively low
noise.

Final image depends very much how that sensor is used, non sensor parts such as the read chain and the OLPF have a substantial influence over the final image. I was also commenting clearly within the context of the underlying technology, my assertion being that Nikon had a more efficient technology, and therefore the ability to produce a sensor with similar resolution to, but higher overall performance than, the Sony sensor.
