    I sympathize with your love of the Foveon sensor because of it’s unique look and dimensionality, but Bayer camera advances have made the Foveon mostly irrelevant since it can’t compete on speed, high iso, buffer or video, and image quality alone is no longer enough to make photographers want to buy a camera especially since its mp count is so low compared to modern Bayer offerings. But I still shoot with my SD1M and will continue to do so because I’m addicted to that unique look, plus pano stitching goes a long way towards making up for the lack of single shot resolution.  But I would never recommend a Sigma camera to others as they’re just too difficult to use compared to any Bayer camera on the market.
