It's a bold design, that's for sure but it's a camera, not a beauty queen. If it solves the battery problem and the speed of processing problem and improves the controls, who cares what it looks like. Alpa technical cameras aren't soap stars either but working photographers don't complain about that.

The new sensor sounds like that patent that was floating around 2 or 3 years ago. Interesting move. Will it retain the characteristics that people like in Foveon? The extra resolution will be of little consequence as 33% increase is hardly noticeable but it will secure bragging rights.

Bet it will be expensive...

The interesting thing is that this design is no longer "True color" per spatial photo site. It is now interpolated. But it still measures more data than an equivalent Bayer.

According to CEO on twitter, the new Quattro has 30% more resolution than Merrill (google translated, so be adviced )

Yes, but that can be interpreted many ways.  As far as full color per spatial photo site goes, no, it doesn't.  As far as luminance goes (and blue luminance at that), yes.
