Sigma's CEO in an interview made it clear that Foveon consumes more power to process, so they can' put in a Sigma FP size (he literally mentioned the Sigma FP in this conversation).

Though Quattro consumes less power than a true X3 design, it's probably still too much judging by what they had to do with the DP Quattro series.

So, there goes my wish

He's said from the start that the next Foveon will be the "ultimate" stills camera - so I'm assuming a very much stills optimized interface.

Either rangefinder or SLR like - I'm guessing more SLR like with a grip, especially for the battery.

It's amazing how tiny the battery was on the early dp Foveons though. They use the same tiny battery as Ricoh and some Leica cameras. At least it's easy to carry around lots of batteries because they're so small.
