Is it me? How is it that most manufacturers are using the simple Bayer pattern on most of their sensors, and everyone has the same image issues as a result, and everyone band-aids it with the clarity-robbing AA filter.
There is something almost funny that Fuji is able to "stun the world" by going with a slightly more complex pattern. It just seems amazing that the others have not jumped on that a long time ago. It's not like Fuji, or anyone, could patent the whole idea of doing something, anything, other than Bayer.
Sony is mucking around with a 4th color in the RGB, I read. They and others will be innovating on all elements of the sensor and smaller manufacturing processes. Could something as simple as "non-Bayer" give Canon an easy lower-tech leg up against competition? Is that some low-hanging fruit Canon could pick?
Wow... you should start your own company! I'll buy your first two cameras
@Chilly: Glad you were able to avoid the knee-jerk reaction on that one. After all, I did ask a question that could, with some effort, be viewed as obliquely questioning Canon, and I was therefore asking for it.
