There shots are amazing. Really. Not just because of the sensor, but because the camera is in some talented hands. Thanks for posting, all.
I have been thinking about the Foveon vs. Bayer thing, and while I think that some of the inherent advantage is certainly the full-color pixels of the Foveon, there are other things to consider.
Over the years, camera manufactures have placed a huge emphasis on high-iso performance. Some would agree that this has happened at the expense of low-iso performance. Weaker CFA's, NR in raw files, etc.
I was looking back at some old 1Ds files, as I just snagged a used one on B&S, and I'm always taken by how sharp the files are...how much detail there is in the 11MP files. But this was back when low-iso was still king.
I don't see anything like the image below out of any of my new cameras. Sure, the higher magnification makes for a lower apparent sharpness, but I do think that most new cams are sacrificing the best possible image quality for better all-round performance. Sigma obviously didn't follow that trend with this series of cameras.
Interesting and those pixels at that time was huge:
D40 6mp - 7.9 micron CCD
D40x 10 mp- 6.1 micron CCD
D60 10 mp- 6.1 micron CCD
D200 10 mp- 6.1 micron CCD
D300 12 mp- 5.5 micron CMOS
D3100 14mp- 4.94 micron CMOS
D5100: 16mp-4.78 micron CMOS
D7000: 16mp-4.78 micron CMOS
D3/D700 12 mp - 8.5 micron CMOS (allerstørste pixel-størrelse på nogen DSLR nogensinde)
D3x: 24 MP 5.94 microns CMOS
D4: 16MP 7.3-micron pixels CMOS
D800: 36 MP 4.88 microns CMOS
Canon 1DX = 18 mp 6.95 micron pixels, CMOS (1.25 microns larger than the 1DMKIV and 0.55 microns bigger than the 5DMKII's pixels).
and the former/the "old":
Nikon D1 11,8 mikron:
EOS-1D 11,5 mikron:
EOS-D30 10,5 mikron:
EOS-1Ds 8,8 mikron
