In a previous rumor, there was an article that Canon had a sensor with Foveon-like multi-lawer characteristics.

I think it would be great if Canon put big R&D $$$ into Foveon-like sensor technology, especially if high-iso improved.

Nope.

We've had the same rumor for something like a decade now.

No way as the camera market shrinks rapidly the camera companies are going to pour a ton of R&D money into this.
