I would be happy with 8Mpx (x3) Foveon with larger photosites. What is fundamental is absence of typical Foveon noise with higher ISO, low light sensitivity and widest possible dynamic/tonal range. The size of the sensor should reflect this. Also, the bigger is the sensor, the bigger is the problem with chromatic aberration with standard lenses, as we can see with SD1.

Also I would be overjoyed for Foveon full HD video. That would be groundbreaking. And it needs just 2Mpx on the sensor... And 8Mpx is great for pixel binning...

From my perspective I donĀ“t need full frame and extreme resolution, I would be happy, if Foveon delivers just the best 8Mpx I can get of any digital camera.
