Hi guys,

yeah, I know about the other sensor manufacturers (even Samsung are producing them), but I'd anticipate that it would be a significant (short term?) problem for any of Sony's current sensor customers to have to start from scratch with another supplier.

Negotiating new contracts, quality assuring the alternatives, confirming fitness for purpose - maybe re-engineering in-house cicuit boards to accept the new CCD - all of these would be issues that camera manufacturers would surely prefer to avoid?
