There was probably no real reason why they couldn't have used Sony
sensors earlier (than the OMD E5), presumably Olympus was using Sony
sensor for P&S cameras, so they would have already had a relationship.
With larger format (4/3 - 35mm) it seems that Sony have worked their way
into a very strong position.
CMOSIS (supplying the new Leica M) seem to use similar technology to
Sony Exmor (on-chip 14 bit column AD conversion). It will be
interesting to see how it performs against the (same pixel pitch) Nikon
D600 sensor. I don't think it will win - it will be a generation
behind, perhaps similar to the D3x.
Claimed 76dB linear dynamic range is less (about 12.6 vs 13.4 stops),
FWC is also just over 1/2 that of the D600.
