I read on an german forum that foeon has stopped any further r&d on the X3 chip. The guy who posted this claimed that he read this last year in an u.s. magazine's interview of one of foveon's developer. reportedly, this developer has said that the chip isn't doing well at scaling up.
I don't know whether this is true but it would make sense as foveon has been very slow in pushing X3's resolution up.
If it's really true this would mean the end of this great DSLR. As many of you I don't own one but I'm waiting for a better version (higher resolution, reduced noise) and I would be dissappointed if I've to buy another brand.
Here's the link to the german forum:
