Re: Medium format petition?

I agree FF would be a better first move. FF has 2.33 times more area than APS-C, so a FF Foveon should have 15.33 * 2.33 = 35.7 million photo sites, which would be roughly equivalent to a 70MP Bayer.

36mm*24mm = 864 sq mm

23.6mm*15.7mm = 370.5 sq mm

864/370.5 = 2.33 more photo sites.

whereas

MF =~ 40mm*53mm = 2120 sq mm => 87.7 million photo sites at current density.
