But if you go for narrow-band detection, as in a Bayer sensor, you lose the colour quality of the Foveon sensors.

That is an interesting comment.

The Foveon sensor has a huge overlap.

In theory, this means that if you have an area of similar hue, then you can resolve more hues. So, when an RGB camera shows green leaves, a Foveon camera might show leaves with a nice texture.

That is theory. I do not know if anyone have tested the theory.
