Does the K10 have a sony sensor or not?

I just read another "preview" review it says that the sensor isn't made by sony.
another says the sensor is a slightly different size.

does anyone know the truth?

thnks

Yep, it certainly does!

Its is pretty much the same as the one used in the D80 and Sony Alpha (2 channel version). The D200 has four readout channels hence faster frame rate.
I believe Sony do modify the chips slightly for each customer but only superficially.
Confirmed by Pentax UK.
