The next few years would be interesting as both Canon and Sony are working on Foveon type sensors. It'll be the next big thing. Sony is also working on FF sensor >50MPix resolution. So as Fuji is about to unveil their organic CMOS sensor, Canon and Sony too are about to unveil their Foveon type sensor. There is no doubt that Foveon type sensor will have better details and better colors. But the Fuji sensor is likely to have better dynamic range and better high ISO performance. If there is enough pixel density on the organic sensor, maybe details and colors will be close to identical to the Foveon type sensor. Who knows who is going to win the race. We're certainly in an interesting time.

Panasonic has also been working on a Foveon type sensor

Given that Panasonic and Fuji are working on the organic sensor

there is a good chance that Fuji will have access to the Panasonic technology.
