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).

Nor am I.

G9 with G1 14-45mm kit lens:

Sawtooth setter, business end about 4cm wide

I've since bought their awesome 12-35mm 'X' Vario with Power-IS which gives me dual-IS with the IBIS.
