You are being such a loyalist now...D850,D810,D800,D750,D4,D5, D6...All have had Sony sensors with slight tweaking here and there. Nikon don't make sensors and if they do then it would have been obvious by now. Stop dreaming.

So this is not true: https://petapixel.com/2018/07/17/yes-nikon-designs-its-own-sensors/ ?


I’ve known for some time that Nikon actually designs their own sensors, to a fairly minute level of detail,” Etchells writes. “I think this is almost unknown in the photo community; most people just assume that ‘design’ in Nikon’s case simply consists of ordering-up different combinations of specs from sensor manufacturers, picking a feature from column ‘A’, another from column ‘B’ and so on, like a Chinese restaurant menu.

“In actuality, they have a full staff of sensor engineers who design cutting-edge sensors like those in the D5 and D850 from the ground up, optimizing their designs to work optimally with NIKKOR lenses and Nikon’s EXPEED image-processor architecture.

That's marketing for your info...Keep the investors happy, every good info is good for the company to hold onto their market value or better. Its very easy to identify sensors other than Sonys. Look at Canons, even the pins position and numbers are different. However you can never tell apart sensors in Nikon cameras from Sonys. Nikon needs every bit of good publicity to keep it afloat......Sensors from Sonys are the best of the crop and cheaper than inhouse designs. Go figure...Stop this blind fanatism
