Sony will not sell it's (Best) Sensor to Nikon

Nikon sensor

On December 2016 one of our forum members have reported that Nikon is not getting the 42 MP sensor from Sony. Now after three months we got confirmation from Sony itself that they have stopped selling their best sensors to Nikon and others commercially. That’s a really sad news for Nikon and its users.

Let’s take an look What Sony representatives said in the interview (some major points)

1. Only Sony Can Use these Sensors

As you know well, our key driver is the image sensor, and we already invested a lot of money for the image sensor development. And the sensor is a custom [design, meaning that] only Sony can use these sensors, and our strength is our in-house technology. So I invested in that and we will keep investing in the in-house technology like image sensors.

2. About Future Fullframe Camera

Now we are focused on three essential factors. One is of course the resolution, and another is the sensitivity, and third is the speed. [For example] 20 frames per second and 30 frames per burst or 100 frames per second, everybody wants to [have] that kind of functionality, but I can’t say yes. Because they don’t know how to use this kind of technology, but if we can show the benefit for that, people [will] enjoy the new technology, I think

3.  APS-C vs Fullframe

Yes. Full-frame is our primary area. But as you said, we don’t ignore the APS-C market, and we can also grow the APS-C market.

That’s why Nikon haven’t announced any Serious fullframe sensor based DSLR or mirrorless from past 1 year. Nikon D750 successor is due for an update for a longtime.  Nikon also reported Extraordinary Financial Loss a while ago.
