    Dream come true from Sigma?!

    If this turns out to be more than a rumor than it could be a dream come true...at least for me. A foveon sensor with a micro 4/3 mount?! Oh my God! Please DON'T be a rumor!

    If they also manage to make the sensor more sensitive and allow for support with today's popular RAW converters (Aperture, Lightroom, C1Pro) then this would be really great.

    Albeit with the same ISO performance as the current Foveon sensors I would not be buying - and I believe this is their biggest problem.

    I've mostly photographed in daylight during the last forty years (a few times I used flash), so the Foveon sensor would be great as it comes as far as I'm concerned. I think this is exciting if true.

    Good news to someone on the verge of buying a DP3 for studio portrait work.

    I have mixed feelings about this. I hope Sigma form a close partnership with Panasonic or Olympus to bring a Sigma flavour of the GX7 or E-M5 with Sigma sensor, rather than developing their own body from scratch.

    Can't wait to see how this turns out!

    Cheers

    Better be "good" daylight as the Foveon colour starts to look weird past 200 ISO.
