Maybe most important is to know your camera, its likes and
idiosyncrasies?

OK. You insist Nikon is D3/D700 are having best available today
sensor, because it is most "efficient", going by Emil's tables :)) So
be it.

But I never insisted that. What I said was "A good reason for Nikon not to use the A900 sensor in a flagship model is that it has become better at designing sensors than Sony (or Canon, for that matter)". Then I put forward the measurements that their sensor is the mos efficient currently used as evidence. There is some validity in the statement that the D3 sensor is the best for its purpose. If that additional efficiency was passed on to a sensor designed for another purpose, it is likely that that sensor would be outstanding also.
