But realize that Dick Merrill knew more about the sensor(s) than Joe W... Incidentally it was fascinating to search for the old thread I knew was there (and that Dick indeed wrote). I came across posts too by other knowledgeable folk(s) involved in Foveon sensor development.

I do highly respect Dick Merrill. What he has made is outstanding. He is one of my heroes.

But ... it is an error to assume that he always knows more. This is a quite common error made by many people, to assume the most famous man and the originator is all knowing and therefore debating with him is futile.

If you read this thread you see that the points made against him sometimes have some merit.
