I believe Nikon cameras use sony sensors. The exception is the nikon J1/ V1 that does use an aptina sensor.
If I am wrong , I have no problem people do point it out.
When it does come to the J1/V1 I am completely sure.
When it does come to nikon 5100.., I am 99% sure it does use sony sensor.

I am not completely sure all nikon DSLR cameras have sensors made by sony but someone more knowledgeable can enlighten that point.

Nikon designs the sensors, Sony only fabs them.

I have read that some sensors are the same.
Look here.



As you know the Sony A580 shares the same Sony 16 Megapixel sensor featured inside the Nikon D7000 (although Nikon says they designed the sensor).
