I can't help wonder if the new sensor rumored to be coming out in the next 18months is related to Nikon's big recent descounts either to get commited FF users in lue of another company coming out with a market disruptive sensor or to increases sales now and get even more when and if Nikon is the one coming out with this.. Here's thread on the subject.

So what? Even if someone does come out with a 3-layer sensor that is much better than the current Sigma / Foveon sensors, unless you mostly shoot at base iso it is still likely to be worse than the best Bayer sensors in many respects.

In this design the light hitting the bottom layer has to first pass through the top two layers, so there is always going to be a lot of light loss..
