Tarts! They have no shame  :P

It's been a long week.  I need to laugh at someone calling Nikon a bunch of tarts.  Full marks.

Thanks, us '50's have to stick together  ;D

Some may be surprised that the Sony Alpha line of cameras are basically restructured and re-branded Minolta cameras.....

I personally don't think it's really all that big of a deal Nikon may be having Sony making a sensor for them, the D850 is a beast of a camera and Sony really doesn't have anything like it. I could care a less that it may have a Sony made sensor.

Personally I'd rather have the Nikon D850 or even the Pentax K-1 over any Sony Camera right now, but that is just me and my preference.

All those smaller cameras seem to me would be like trying to mount a 70-200mm to a friggin gopro! ;)

The Sony A99-II is 42 MP x 12 fps with a decently chunky grip for big lenses.  That's not far off from what the D850 is offering (at least at a superficial market-segment level).

In fact, the D800 used a Sony sensor to their design and they got more out of it than Sony could in their cameras. Fact is, Sony sensor is a completely different and completely independent division of Sony corporation and they do their own thing. And as I understand it the sensor division is vastly more profitable than the camera division so will sell wherever they can continue to make those profits.
I think that you may find that the sensor business is currently going down hill.  Smart phone sales are what drives the Sony sensor sales, and they are in the dumps.

The good news is that sensors for other applications, such as automotive are strong.  Camera sensor sales are only a tiny blip as far as Sony sensor sales go.

Yes, that does look like a beast. I'd love to play with it for a day or two using all my old Takumars and other vintage glass!
I'll stick with my Canon DSLR's though, I'm too heavily invested, besides, I love using them....(love Canon Lenses too) ;)

Since Apple is buying Sony and Canon, they wouldn't notice buying Nikon also.
