Any new camera will probably be expensive now...

Not knowing where the cost of the SD1 is accounted, it's difficult to say that any camera with a 'new' X3F sensor will ever be priced at consumer level again, since it seems that the sensor is the only place to put the high price of the SD1.

But with the advances of new technology since 2002, maybe they could take the original foveon chip and just make it FF. I would be happy if they made the sensors larger - maybe that would allow for removing the foveon magenta/green blotches (which seem to be inherent in the technology).
