IQ is rather disappointing...

This is my personal impression from overall image quality (not composition, etc). In general, every image that I looked at made me think something like this:

  • No "good" Foveon look at any size (what we call pop, wow, or 3D effect)

  • "Bad" Foveon look is present more often than desired (noise, color accuracy, and everything that other posters mentioned).

  • Any similar camera from other brands would produce much more cleaner and visually appealing images that SD1

Rick, I noticed that you didn't mention anything about your personal impression from purely IQ stand point choosing to focus on technical performance of the camera and SPP. That, to me, is not a good sign. Would you care elaborating about your sincere feelings regarding IQ if not prohibited by any contractual terms that may (just may) exist (espesially in comparison to the output from other bands in similar light conditions)?
