    They only have a single 16 MP, APS-C CMOS (MT9H004) in their product
    line. The only cameras that use Aptina CMOS are a pair of Point & Shoots
    wearing a General Electric badge. G100 and E1410SW long-zoom compacts
    which are fitted with new Aptina A-Pix CMOS sensors. The P&S offerings
    use the Aptina MT9F002 1/2.3 inch. The only Nikon on Aptina's website is
    a stock image of the back of a Nikon dSLR.

    Just a rumour, a persistent one, hence the "?"

    Stop evading the question. Just where in the article was that mentioned,
    even as a rumor.

    Is/was Micron owned by Nikon? Many years ago I bought a pair of "Micron"
    binoculars that wore the logo of Nippon Kogaku (Japan Optical), of which
    "Nikon" is a contraction.

    Something bad must have happened to Micron. It appears that their Web site has
    been pulled.
