Well, it's a stop-gap for a year or two until Sony finally bring out sensors with full-colour pixels. Then all this heavy calculation for demosaicing will no longer be needed.

They still haven't brought us PD on-chip. It might be longer than a year or two, and that's assuming that they can keep up the pixel count....

In the mean time the results are quite good.
