Re: Sigma’s ownership of Foveon sensor – greatest loss for the photograph

Your statement couldn't be further from the truth. Foveon was offered for sale. Nikon, Canon, Sony and the rest of the industry didn't step up and purchase it. Sigma stepped in and rescued Foveon-purchased it and has kept Foveon sensor technology alive. If Sigma hadn't stepped in---Foveon would have either gone belly up or its patents snapped up and shelved as the big sensor companies already had too large investment in bayer sensor technology. Thats my take on it.
Sigma saved Foveon.

Just imagine for example Sony having the Foveon sensor. This idea doesn’t need more words…
