I should also warn you that Foveon cameras have a lot of problems quirks that make them not for everyone. The sensors are very cranky, the cameras have poor AF and ISO performance, and they don't really fit into the typical software processing flow.

But if you want to see photos that actually have their own "color science," you can't do much better than Foveon unless you go medium format. Every other digital camera out there uses either a Bayer color filter or in the case of Fuji, X-Trans, which is a variant. But foveon is (more or less) a true color sensor with no color interpolation. They render fine detail extraordinarily well . They also happen to create stunning monochromes since they aren't interpolating via color filters.

Best of all, used cameras are quite cheap because everyone hates working with them!
