I beg to differ

I’m not that disappointed. Foveon’s strength is great fine details, and some of these images certainly demonstrate this attribute of Foveon. It is, however, also evident that the new sensor presents much bigger challenges to the lenses and photographers. Chromatic aberration is more pronounced, and edge and corner can be quite soft even when FF lenses are used. Wide angle lenses seem to struggle a lot in these respects. But then why bother with SD1 for landscape if WA lenses don’t do justice to its sensor?

Still my first choice of DSLR (FF inclusive) at any price under USD2500.
