A Ricoh dream : what the next flagship camera should look like

Looking at recent events and reviews, here are my feeling about what can be done by Ricoh to pump up it's line up

  • Take a GXR Body

  • Take a Foveon X3 sensor

  • Add a very fast wide/standard GR lens (44 mm F1,4 or so) because the foveon is bad at high iso.

  • Make the firmware easy to hack for deep customization

  • DNG raws

  • Seamless manual focus ring

  • As few moving parts as possible to make it silent and sturdy

1200 $ ~

Do you think there it any chance that Sigma could licence the Foveon to another manufacturer ? Do you think there is any chance that Ricoh could go down that path ?
