Re: Sony and Nikon sensor alike?

I think Thom has it correct. The base silicon and silicon fabrication process is probably the same, but the micro lens and filter design could be different. And that could make a dramatic difference to sharpness and noise.

If the micro lenses are more effective at gathering light than the Sony ones, then noise will be lower at high ISO.
