The crazy thing is that it's the first Toshiba-made sensor that Nikon has used in a dSLR (I think) and bam - knocked it out of the park from the get-go.

Toshiba and Sony have been sharing CMOS production facilities for years. (Toshiba makes the image sensor in Sony's PS3.) If that particular D5200 happened to have a Toshiba sensor in it, it was almost certainly manufactured under license from Sony.

I just can't wait to see what Canon comes up with to counter what Nikon has done. Don't you just love the megapixel wars ? It's almost funny. After about 12 to 16 megapixels or less you can't see the difference anyway.

and just recently they said the sensor on the Pemtax K-5ii and K-5iis were the best APS-C on the market. How quickly things change in the camera world
