Optimized Design

Can this optimization be done after Nikon gets the sensor from Sony? Because according to DxO Mark charts and scores the sensors in the NEX 5N and 7 seem to behave very similarly to the D7000 sensor, and the former two are of the same generation as the D800 sensor. By contrast, the D3s and D4 sensors are non-Sony designs from the beginning.

It must be part of the basic design and cannot be added after the sensor has been fabricated. However, just the fact that a feature is designed into a part, does not mean it must be used. If Sony use the 36Mp sensor in a product later, it wouldn't necessarily be operated the same way; this could be specified in contractual IP agreements between the companies. All of this business is not exactly within my area of expertise, though, and someone like Bobn2 could offer much more enlightenment.
