Re: Bayer - Foveon comparison

Pretty much what I would have expected.

Foveon: Rich, full and ripe colour and tones. Sigma: Really need to nail the exposure accurately. In this case, it seems pretty good.

Bayer: Acceptable but flat colour and tones. Canon: Really need to nail the exposure accurately.

Did I say the same thing about exposure for both Canon and Sigma... Well... I did too. Have a look at the rendition of the sky in the Canon 50D shot: Flat, dull and boring - But it's a 14bit, 15MP file (in RAW) - so there is plenty more information that can still be recovered. The SD14 picked up all that info - and more without having to look for it.

That's MHO, for what it's worth.
