The Foveon Chip is BETTER than your inferior bayer EYES

YOUR EYES USE AN INFERIOR BAYER PATTERN SENSOR WITH ONLY 7M color detectors! This is only 3M G and 2M R & B. The new SIGMA SD14 has twice as many sensors and produces TRUE colors not made up NUTELLA INTERPOLATED colors of your brain. Your brain has to GUESS about true colors because it only samples ONE color at each cone. The Foveon samples 3! Look at a screen window up close... see that horrible MOIRE? That requires HOURS of POSTPROCESSING and HEAVY DRINKING to get rid of, and then you get lots of BLUR.

Sorry, couldn't resist. This is just a joke, don't get all uptight over it. I'm an SD9 user but sometimes this kind of stuff gets strange when it's taken too far sometimes.
