Re: Camera to defeat = Nikon D5200

From what I have read, Toshiba has an agreement with Sony to manufacture their sensors ( I guess Toshiba has a fab...) so its probably still a Sony sensor. And price-wise, the A58 is in a lower category, its more like a D3200 in price.

Marking on the sensor indicates who is sensor designer not who manufactured it. On D3200 sensor it's a Nikon D3200, on D5200 Toshiba and finally on NEX7 Sony. While NEX7 sensor which is Sony and D3200 Nikon sensors performs pretty much the same on on all ISO values the Toshiba sensor excels at DR at higher ISO and it almost matches Sony FF sensor in D600 for DR at high ISO. You can't compare SLT with SLR's or mirrorless because SLT steal the light.

Sony sensors could be FABed at Toshiba and vice versa.
