Not exactly true - Sigma has the Foveon. The SD9, not only had no bayer filter, but no AA filter or MICROLENSES! In theory, this is better, in reality, not so much.
In what reality doesn't the Foveon work? Have you seen the images the DP2M produces, the detail that camera produces is astonishing. Especially for the price.
By what I've seen and understand the Sig sensors are phenomenal, while the cameras themselves are nothing to even bother considering. THOUGH, if they made an FF Foveon, and considering how they're glass is these days???
Also Fuji, with the rumor of an X200 coming out I'm excited to see what that's like. I suggested to and got a friend into buying a used X100, and man I get a little jealous whenever it gets pulled out, and straight from the camera the Jpegs have nice colors and the bokeh is nice, although I found F/2 to be quite soft when up close, but that's about it.
We're supposed to be talking about sensor tech here, yes, I guess the reason for the big boys Canikon haven't really experimented in public with new designs is because professionals want to stick with what works, like if Canon all of a sudden decided to finally add EVFs on all their DSLRs, that's too much of a change that pros won't feel comfortable adapting to.
