Re: What difference does it make?

Whatever you see is probably the specifications.  Olympus, Nikon and Pentax do not manufacture their own sensors.  OTOH, they are large buyers who have their sensors custom made by Panasonic, Sony, Toshiba and others.  For example, the most recent enthusiast DSLRs for both Nikon and Pentax have their sensors made by Toshiba, but they are not the same.

What are those specifications?
