Re: Don't understand...

I was responding to this:

but I'd also be happy with one increased to 1.5 crop factor.

The SD1 sensor "is" a 1.5 crop...

Yes, but the Sd1 sensor is not FF. It's 23.5mm across, or 1.5 crop. The original post was about what we would like to see for res on a FF Foveon at 36mm across.

The idea is that if we had it full frame size it would give better performance with respect to image quality and be less demanding of lens resolution because the pixel pitch would be much larger.
