Given Nikon's financial situation I highly doubt that they can ask Sony to do a custom development of a 72mp sensor.
I don't think that the Canon 5Ds ® is a high volume camera - just to point to a competitor - and Nikon needs high production volumes more than Canon.
Thus unless Sony is planning to come up with a 72mp sensor for its cameras, I'd say that this is a weak rumor.

I wouldn't call that a rumor. A rumor should be based on at least ONE trustworthy source, if not several. To me this sounds more like someone writing down last night's wet dream...
"For example, Sony has been using their 42.4-megapixel sensor for years, and Canon outdid that recently with its 50.6-megapixel sensor in the 5DS and 5DSR."
Wrong, the Canon 5DS and 5DSR predate the Sony A7R II.
He can't even get the real facts... factual.
Higher MP are possible, but then it comes the question about lenses. We can see what happens when 50MP are used on full frame camera, only lenses above 1kg do well. Who needs that?
Toni, are you writing those rumours?
