Finally, Sigma decided to buy the company producing their digital camera sensors. Since Foveon is really only manufacturing for Sigma, this makes sense from the camera manufacturer’s point of view. But, I can’t help regretting the lost opportunity of using Foveon’s multiple-stacked-pixels interesting technology within other camera brands.

Let’s see what this will bring to the products and the market. And let’s hope that it’s not only a last hope move from Sigma.
