Thanks digi2ap.

I have absolutely no idea what to make of that information. Two "sources".

Source 1: "SIGMA fp L use a special pixel type effective 60.75 megapixels sensor named IMX513BQR from sony-semiconductor to replace the unstable Foveon X3 sensor."

Wow! I have heard many derogatory descriptions of the Foveon X3 sensor, but never "unstable". I guess that means it might explode at any moment... Thank god they're not going to continue with it.

Source 2: "The newly CMOS sensor of sigma fp L has a CFA like the fujifilm’s Super CCD."

A "newly CMOS sensor"! Gasp-O-Matic!

Maybe we'll get some coherent information from a non-rumours source soon.

I really didn't get the feeling that Sigma was completely abandoning the Foveon basic design from Mr Yamaki's last video. Or did I miss something?

It may be that Sigma's new fp L is heading in the cinema-only direction and the next gen Foveon is still on the drawing board.

A quick search revealed this info.

And I've never heard of a Foveon sensor that looks like this.
