Hey Tamron or Zeiss, If you can read this... 1:2.9 is no Macro. Mkay?

You can clearly see that the D800E has at least twice the real-world "resolution" (read that as spatial resolution or resolving power, not width and height image dimensions) as the SD1.
Your misunderstanding. Every bayer pixel may have only one color, but regardless of color, every pixel receives "light". This is why the spatial resolution of a bayer sensor is so high, and why a D800 is capable of resolving so much detail. If you convert a bayer sensor's data to monochrome, you effectively have just the full detail luminance.
[...]this lens has really bad LOCA that's difficult to fix in post[...]
I'd be happy with a moderately-decent, powered 24-105 f/2.8 (FF equiv) cinema lens, made to match the C100. Get both for $5000 each, and that would be a great indie doc base kit at $10,000.
Is that really too much to ask?
Unfortunately, probably. The closest thing (26-120mm f2.8 equivalent) weighs 15lbs and costs $90,000.
It may have 45 million photodiodes, but that is not the same as megapixels, and I really wish Sigma would stop being so misleading.
Furthermore, the D800 and 645D both have more information to start with. They are resolving details that are not even present in the SD1 image at all, despite it's sharpness
A light sharpening filter can deal with the softness in a few seconds, and then the SD1 is at a real disadvantage.
Have you seen the new DP2? They claim up to 39 MP...
ISO100 on FoveOn is great, now show us something at ISO3200 and compare that to a 5D.
How much ever superior MF may be to full frame, which it must be, IYeah, it's all about 12 Frames per seconds. And without ISO 204800
cannot imagine dropping my 1dx. I love its fps and portability compared
It is a shrinking market, for various reason, and it would stay a niche market in the best of cases. Plus it would require a new lens mount and new lenses.
