Playing to the mean is precisely what the CFA technology does.

And our monitors and our printers and every other color display technology we use day to day.

CFA spectral color resolution is poor in relation to Foveon color resolution.

Now you are trying to distinguish between hue/luminance error (and metermerism) and color edge acuity. If the color edge does not match the pixel alignment precisely, then the hue accuracy will be compromised.

that currently under the right conditions it out-performs CFA based sensors in several important ways.

And you have now circled back "I llike Foveon better." I think we know that by know.

What do they hope to accomplish by continuing arguments year after year even when very competent reviewers and photographers praise the results they get with the latest Sigma cameras?

What do you hope to accomplish by praising the output year after year and attacking those who hold a different opinion?

Just asking... And as far as human vision is concerned, yes I do indeed know what I'm talking about.

Then the answer to my question about "intentionally playing ignorant" is a "yes?"
