    Process does matter though. Read this: http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Publications/DxOMark-Reviews/DxOMark-Camera-Sensor2

    And: http://www.chipworks.com/blog/recentteardowns/2013/01/08/inside-the-nikon-d5200-dslr-toshiba-found/

    And: http://www.chipworks.com/blog/techn...ll-frame-dslr-cameras-canon-stays-the-course/ (Canon still using 500nm tech while others have gone all the way down to 90nm by now!)

    nm is not just about cramming pixels, look at the way CMOS sensors are constructed and you will understand why shrinking the circuitry and/or using better material like copper instead of aluminum, can help.

    Canon has basically been stuck at the same process for the last several years. But Canon is slated to upgrade its fabs to 180nm "soon," so maybe they will finally catch up with Sony. Toshiba certainly has... their d5200 sensor is on par with Sony's d5100 sensor when you print the photos at the same size.

    I own Canon and dont mind the scores. I also dont mind people who own Nikons. Or those who own better cameras than mine. Its pretty pathetic i think to see how riled people become when their equipment isnt ranked on some website as the best. I frequent a canon photography website and so many people get so rude if a member was to ask about switching over to Nikon. Seriously.....you have to be pretty shallow for the name brand of a company to validate you as a person
