D3 and D700 have Nikon's version of 50D's gapless microlens?

I read in Canon forum today that D3 and D700 have Nikon's version of 50D's gapless microlens.

Is that correct?

LOL

I am sure people know what I meant. Is it correct that D3 and D700 have gapless microlens? (and you meant sensor. not LCD, correct?)

"The D3 FX format CMOS imaging sensor was designed from the ground up to offer exceptional light transmission properties, so photographers can acquire outstanding image quality even in low light conditions. With a high signal to noise ratio, a pixel pitch 15% larger than competitive cameras, gapless surface micro-lenses and advanced on-chip noise reduction means high-quality images under very low light levels are now possible."

Thank you! Do we have any quote anywhere that confirms this is identical in D700?
