Pro AA filter users forget Sigma's Foveon sensor

Pro AA filter users either forget or don't know about Sigma"s Foveon sensor. I mentioned it a couple of times in this thread but it needs to be emphasized that the Foveon sensors in Sigma's cameras do not need nor do they have such a filter, for they simply do not suffer from the fine detail drawbacks of Bayer sensors.

A sample image from a Sigma DP3 camera. Get a load of that detail.
