Re: Sigma May Launch their own Mirrorless System - Impress Japan

Actually, that translation is wrong.  What the original Japanese text says is that a fullframe Foveon sensor is possible, but the main point would be the cost.

People say some amazing things, for example: "1) a new APS-C Foveon sensor (note: current sensor are slightly smaller than APS-C)." What...? The sensor is almost exactly the same size as every other APS-C sensor -- about .5 of millimetre smaller. Nikon is about the same and Canon is smaller still, at 1.6.

Anyway, there is no reliable source for the rumour, so it's pretty pointless and has just as much validity as me saying it in a post here.
