Re: Why do you feel...

I think they will use this sensor + 14bit ADC and the usual Nikon spices that make for great results.

Maybe because the upcoming D400 will use this sensor. If it is good now, the better it will be with Nikon.

It should be clear by now that the Sony 24MP sensor has been optimized for video, not still photography, so with that in mind, I doubt the yet to be announced Nikon D400 will use this Sony sensor unless it can be modified to get acceptable image quality for still use. A Nikon rep told me a while ago that Nikon was looking at all options for the Nikon D400 sensor. After seeing the poor still image quality of the Sony a77, I now understand why.
