Panasonic's technique uses beam splitters, not dye filtration. No absorption losses, but a very different color response than dye filters, and a completely different sort of color matrix than Bayer.

That is indeed an interesting idea. I just looked at the link you provided, but apparently Nature wants money to let me dig deeper. So I'll await further developments, since this isn't ready for prime time yet.

Their mention of angle-of-incidence problems sounds like it has implications for lens design. Oh, well, nothing is simple.

If you hear more, please post it.
