Given that Sigma's sensor seems so well suited for landscape/architecture I'm wondering is an ultrawide(20mm equivalent or wider) model possible? I thinking mainly about cost and whether the foveon sensor can cope with light coming in at a narrow angle.

Possible it should be. even wider FL.

Cost is something else, unknown here.

Since its a fixed FL, the sensor could be concave to match that specific FL and light would hit straight till the bottom of every pixel.

FF sensor have issues @ edges at WA and concave sensors could address those problems too.

If this is possible , Ricoh could make modules for diff. prime lenses and every Concave Sensor with diff. curvature  to match the specific FL of that prime.

maybe i am totally wrong here.
