Sounds interesting - I wonder what the net gain will be in terms of light collection. If the current Bayer array blocks 50-70% of light, AT BEST we can probably hope for 1/2 stop improvement (if I am understanding this correctly).

Which is a lot! We're getting close to hitting the physics barriers, so 1/2 stop is a major breakthrough.

Purely out of curiosity, what physical barriers are we getting close to hitting?
