Re: What difference does it make?

Whatever you see is probably the specifications. Olympus, Nikon and Pentax do not manufacture their own sensors.

Nikon at least was/is able to design sensors (and outsource fabrication)... Olympus and Pentax never were able to design imaging sensors... that is a major difference... again - look @ patents - you will never find anything from Olympus or Pentax related to what is in chip (in silicone and how it is laid out there) vs what is on top of it.
