What's important depends on the consumer. Your average person, buying at a Best Buy or whatever "big box" store, will never spend a second to understand why Foveon is better. A person can have a PhD in astrophysics but if photography is not an interest of theirs, or they easily fall under the spell of brand names, then their intelligence won't help them much. If however you have someone who cares about photography and is perceptive (not everyone is both), the importance of Foveon will be clear to them, although they may not ultimately buy one.

Good post. I have to admit I use mine like they are sort of a view camera and I have like 10 sheets of film with me. They are nothing you would probably have as your only camera. And a Pro is NOT going to make a living using it at a wedding lol. But when they work oh my god they work! But then they don't, so much for that shot.
