Re: Why Tell me Why?????

Because they wanted a hybrid photo/video camera and expected the full frame Foveon to be ready not too long after the original fp.

When the new sensor was delayed and they sold more fp to photographers than expected, they put a high mp sensor in the same body to offer more choice to customers.

I'm still waiting for the Foveon L-mount, but using an fp with the same lenses in the meantime. After having it for a while I sure understand why they put an AA filter in the fp L. Bayer aliasing is nothing like Foveon.

The upcoming Foveon camera will be tuned for photo, which means hotshoe, physical shutter and likely built-in EVF.
