But with a D850 the disadvantages outweigh the small benefit in terms of color and sharpness. What remains, however, is the use for landscape and the lightweight of 2 Merrills against one D850 with heavy lenses. And even that is going to fade away once Nikon sells their 85/1.8 S.
A Z 8 is rumored with 60 MP and sensor shift, a Z 9, 5 and 3 are also rumored. At best, the Sigma fp Foveon would be a landscape body for people investing in L-mount and having a Panasonic S1 for normal work / high ISO and movie.
JoJo, can't agree more, given what is coming it will be hard sell (let alone the price). If the camera is pleasant to use it may gain traction, so far that was another obstacle.
Faveon sensor in Leica body...
