Re: D7000 x D5200

My guess on this sensor business is that Nikon took a look at the NEX7 and decided the Sony sensor in it wasn't good enough for the D7200 at high ISO (it isn't.)  Their own D3200 is better, but not terribly color accurate and a slight step down in DR.  So they shopped around and came up with the Toshiba item.  Well done.  These guys don't like to lose, that much you can tell.

I see the banding at plus two exposure on the Fred Miranda raw, (an extreme case of total pitch blackness) so that may be a limitation, or they may update firmware when the inevitable internet uproar reaches a certain pitch.  Banding critics, start your engines!
