What are the limitations of the foveon technology?
11 months ago

I had used 4 cameras from sigma, foveon sensor inside. All the cameras had substandard AF, buffer, shot to shot times and above iso 400 they all suffer, the color noise even at low isos were pretty much evident, much more than with my very old D300 bayer camera.

Are these problems inherent to the foveon technology or just not enough money invested on R&D to overcome these issues?

Thanks.
