Hi,

Sony made the D1, D1H, D1X, D200 and D80 sensors. And...get this...they were the same basic device. The D1 and H had this 10 MP CCD with the photosites quaded up under each CFA color. The D1X had them paired up to form a rectangular pixel. The D200 and D80 had them singled up. Finally. All part of an evolution in noise reduction.

I worked for Sony at this period of time and so was privy to what they were doing with the sensors. Pretty cool. That got me to buy each Nikon unit which used those devices as they came out.
