And - color accuracy? Is that an advantage of Foveon, as Laurence claims?

I have done a number of model shoots now, where a variety of people are shooting the same models in the same location (often at the same time) in a variety of poses.

Some things I have learned from this:

1) No camera is "accurate", at least not all the time.

2) The Sigma cameras seem to come closest on average.

3) One aspect of accuracy I think the Foveon sensors do have, is relative color accuracy. If you've not blown out any color channels the relations of colors to each other come through really well, and adjustments you make can bring a whole image in line instead of having to tweak individual colors much.

If you mean that accuracy is that the picture show the same as my eyes see, i have to correct pictures from both my SD15's in LR with +10 in red primary hue and saturation to get the correct match (using neutral color schema in the camera).

But i ONLY some times have issues with red and only with red.  Also with my previous Canons (10-20-30-40D's) i made a habit of using grey cards, cause they were all (the Canons) WAY of in color accuracy)
