It has come to my attention that the Nikon D3100 does not sport a derivative of the 14.2MP EXMOR sensor that is currently in use within the Sony NEX/A33/A560 cameras, but a wholly Nikon designed and  built unit that is slightly smaller with a 1.55x crop compared to the traditional 1.52x crop of the Sony derived sensors that have been used in the past.

This does make the possibility of a 14.2MP D90 replacement more likely if Nikon does not have the capabilities to fabricate two mass market sensors. Nikon has never mass produced a sensor to the scale that would be needed to supply the production of the D3100, and the added need for a second sensor for a D90 replacement could be a big ask. I simply dont know if they can do it. Maybe they can!
