Your 'practical experience' simply says that you prefer the colour rendering of your Sigma to the 'correct' rendering - as I said, that is your privilege, but don't pretend that your preference is a universal truth that everyone else must accept.

No Bob, What you have done is present what you "think" is actuality. It's not me who is creating a fantasy. I "know" what I get from my very large collection of both Sigma and pro-level CFA cameras. You present yourself as an "expert" on Foveon sensors, yet you have yet to demonstrate that you know anything at all about them except what you have read which fits your own quite obvious bias. You are sounding very much like a Joe W. "mini-me" here.

Joe Wisniewski, a man who has actually designed Foveon sensors into equipment. Someone who actually knows how colour reproduction works. So, if I sound like him, it's not a surprise. He's right and I am too.

How does one "design Foveon sensors" into equipment? That's got to be the most convoluted use of the term "design" I've heard yet. One might "design" equipment around a Foveon sensor, but Joe has not "designed" Foveon sensors, period.

Why am I not surprised you are familiar - LOL...

I have told you that CFA sensors have very poor color resolution.

You have then told me an untruth.

It's not obvious that you not only have a deficit in your understanding of Foveon technology, but also a deficit in your knowledge of CFA sensors...

It has been demonstrated "scientifically" by color resolution chart photography multiple times and right here on dPReview.

I have never seen such a scientific demonstration. Maybe you could reference once such.

Why should I do all the work for you Bob - you're the one who admits you haven't seen such and yet tell me I'm wrong. I suggest you try a search for color resolution.

snip - irrelevant
