Nikon D850 to Feature 46MP Sony Sensor!

We have received a new tidbit of information about the Nikon D850 today which suggests that the camera will feature a 46MP Sony sensor. We had previously wondered if the new full frame DSLR from Nikon would feature the 42MP sensor from the Sony A7RII but the latest rumor suggests that this won’t be the case. It seems likely that rather than selling Nikon a sensor which is already deployed in a Sony camera (to prevent direct comparison or competition) Nikon will buy a sensor from Sony’s sensor fabrication business and tweak it so that it meets their own requirements. The rumor also suggests that the D850 will be able to shoot 10fps+ which would stand it in good stead in the inevitable D850 vs EOS 5D Mark IV wars.
