Nikon (D800), Pentax (K-5) and Ricoh (GXR) use Sony sensors. NEX and OM-D are siblings :).

Maybe Canon will use one on 5D IV ? :).


Nikon/Fuji.
Gear is important but skills are very important :)

Well, this explains the high DR that some have reported. Very nice! Good to have sensor competition in the micro 4/3 space.

If everyone is using Sony sensors it's not really competition is it?:confused:
