Re: A Couple Points....

Yes ... those are the typical Sigma vs Bayer B&W resolution test charts.

The Bayer becomes blurrier and blurrier and also with some discoloration.

The Foveon has very obvious aliasing, resulting in 9 lines becoming 7 and very distorted.

I would say though that 15 MP Foveon resolves more than 15 MP Bayer ... but at a cost ... aliasing. I wonder how much better Foveon would be than Bayer, using an appropriate AA filter?
