And? I neither stated nor insinuated otherwise.

Your choice of words (e.g. superior) for describing the camera hinted at the camera being above the competition. In my opinion, your description was overly and unfounded positive. This is not important though.

What is important is if Sigma with the SD1 and its follow ups can show the world that there is (in some sense) a better way of making sensors. I dont believe that the Bayer CFA way of doing things is the ultimate way, just a local maxima in the history of digital cameras. It would be good if something came up that forced the industry to rethink and improve their technology. Foveon is a kind of wake up bell. Lets see if it has some effect. So far it has been ignored.
