Wrong ! That simply means the Sensor can see more fine nuances of a color gradient, the reproduction of the photographed objekt is more accurate.

Not necessarily.

If Foveon can see things that are invisible to the human eye, then that does not increase the accuracy of the camera used as a photographic device that are used to make images that are meant to look like reality.

It might make it a more fun tool to use to be able to record color gradients that normally are invisible. Just as an IR camera and an UV camera might be fun.

Now, it would be nice to see if it is true that Foveon can separate color gradients that RGB cameras cannot. I have not seen such a comparison.

And NOTE - I am not talking about color problems at pixel level. I know those exists for Bayer cameras.
