I'm becoming less and less optimistic about Sigma developing any new Foveons.

Fortunately the Panasonic DC-S5 exists. It is the only full frame camera out there that does not have phase focus pixels. I can get the best image quality from this kind of sensor (Foveon is much better of course).

And, the DC-S5 uses the L-mount lenses.

I haven't bought anything yet, but if a few more months go by without definite news about Foveon full frame, I might just go ahead with the Panasonic.

I love these new Sigma L-mount lenses, and there are now four to choose from.

The Lumix cameras are very good, the more I use my Lumix G9, the more I like the cam. I'm not convinced that FF is better (and I have a decent lens set up).

But you say 'a few months', well there is still a horrible pandemic going on, you have to wait at least a year about news of a new Foveon sensor, my personal opinion is 2022 or not at all. But nobody knows, all speculation.

If I were you I get that DC-S5 now, if you're looking for a new system. I really like Panasonic - Lumix.
