That is Wrong

Hi Laurence.

It is a 5 MP full Foveon sensor, giving 5 MP full color images, with a potential to get 20 MP luminance resolution.

And that is it.

You had a good run of reasonableness there but you seem to have gone quite wrong.  It gives UP TO 20MP full color images (that is unique color per pixel) which is UP TO 40MP bayer equivalent.

Because many, many of the colors can be determined uniquely they are still full color. In the end the question is the percentage of pixels that can generally be determined uniquely.
