Would foveon sensors match well with most modern lenses? Is there a limitation of angle WRT the sensor? I would surely love to use some of my Canon mount lenses with a Sigma sensor.

Sigma's 4.5mm fisheye seems to work fine on a Foveon sensor camera (the SD1 Merrill), as does the 8-16mm zoom. I don't think you'll have problems with your wide-angle Canon lenses on a Sigma camera.

The problem is that SPP knows how to adjust for the Sigma lenses, and may not adjust well for a very wide non-Sigma lens on the SD-1.  I know it did not work too well with an old Pentax 20mm pancake lens I tried.
