We now have a additional IQ difference between the dx and fx bodies...pattern noise vs. none - non-exmor vs. exmor. It also makes me wonder if Sony opted out of providing Nikon with its latest generation 24mp exmor sensor...because it planned to put that in its nex7 followon that just ahout announced. From sony's point of view, its dx sensor are critical...it has full frame, but nikon is more of a pro presence there. we'll see.

I doubt Sony withheld any sensor technology from Nikon; Sony needs those volumes to help cover sensor R&D and amortizing the production run costs. So I agree, APS-C volumes are critical and the loss of the D7100/D5200 sensor socket to Toshiba was probably very bad news for Sony.

D3200 uses a Nikon design, not Sony or Toshiba.
