Not according to their spec sheet:

Isn't Sony making them anyway?

Well, maybe they should talk to Canon or Sony, as both seem to have cracked this nut.

I'd love to have that sensor/pipeline in a full sized body. Even with it's relatively weak ISO performance, it would kick BUTT for sports shooting. I've been very tempted to try it out on a sports shoot.
