    that picture is about 4 years old!!!

    And from what I've heard its not a full frame sensor and it has been delayed but the good news is that the D200 replacement is still due to be announced within the next 4 weeks

    Not sure if thats real or not but as for the Foveon sensor I do not undestand why Nikon and Canon do not use these, from reading about them they sound far superior to a CMOS or CCD. There is zero interpretation of color just a three layer sensor. Anyone have an explaination?

    I heard it makes espresso as well as doing the laundry! Due to be released this month and due in stores by 2011!

    Vaporwear....

    I hope they do release something new. They seem to be loosing a lot of pros to Cannon. I really could care less about sensor size, I just wish they would fix the high ISO noise.

    Other items rumored 1.1 crop factor (vs 1.5), usable with DX lenses (auto crop), fast FPS.... no one knows and if they do they dont want to loose their jobs by blabbing to the bloggers... :)

    From how i understand it the color rendition is very nice but the senor size and quality is not there... How to put it.... Cannon 12mp sensor is a real 12mp sensor, vs a 12mp Foveon sensor is 3, 4mp sensors stacked. Your getting good color, but file size and depth is still 4mp (just stacked)/

    I would love to see 14-16 bit depth like with the med format sensors. Oh that would be nice.:drool:

    Nikon has a patent for a sensor similar in concept, but radically different, then the foveon. Patent was from 2003 too.

    Real or not, it looks like it would roll if you dropped it. ;)
