I would never claim "greater color accuracy" as one of the Foveon advantages, as color accuracy seems to be more a result of the software processing the raw files than any inherent property of the chip (as such, many Bayer cameras have greater color accuracy than Sigma's Foveon bodies). I would, though, claim a greater possibility for more tonal variations within a specific color range due to the high overlap of colors in the chip compared to more narrow color cutoff of Bayer filtration.

I agree, greater tonal variation. For examples with multiple greens, look at all the green variations iwithin one photo in my new Hawaiian vegetation shots on flickr. I find the Sigma cameras capture these variations better than my Canon 5DII. Of course since I didn't take the Canon to Hawaiian, I cannot prove this to DMillier's satisfaction LOL

"You can dream, and it comes true, as long as you can get out of the certitudes. As long as you can get a pioneering spirit, as long as you can explore, as long as you can think off the grid. So much time we spend in our education, in our lives is spent learning certitudes, learning habits, trying to fight against the unknown, to avoid the doubts and question marks. As soon as you start to love the unknown, to love the doubts, to love the question marks, life becomes an absolutely fabulous adventure."
