Ok, these are awesome, sure. I just downloaded the full res horse image and upsized it in CS5 to 30mp (141% in both directions) using bicubic smoother. The image holds up very well. Coming from my 5DII I can imagine that is what a 30mp Bayer image will look like. That's another nice benefit of the Foveon - you only have to deal with storing and working on 15mp images, but if you need to print huge you can just upsize. Nice. So I can see these images competing against the future 5DIII and D800 images, so the body could command a $2500 price. Maybe $2995. In any case, the initial MSRP is still just silly.
