Merrill sensored cameras ARE 30MP luminance equivalents to 30MP cameras!

Re: However many Bayer pixel equivalents are involved, I like the DP2M output

Whether it's exactly 30mp or not is impossible to demonstrate as there is no 30mp Bayer sensored camera (that I know of). There are several 24mp ones that from my tests/comparisons do not quite have the resolution of the 14.7mp Foveon chip, and there is one 36mp chip that has noticeably better resolution than the 14.7mp Foveon chip. So all anyone can actually demonstrate is that the Foveon chip is somewhere between 24mp and 36mp Bayer equivalent (and from what I've seen it's much closer to 24 than 36).

I would suggest that that is mighty difficult to do as one is always comparing a system rather than just the chip.

Too much weight is put on this measurement in my opinion anyway.
