comment What is preventing sensor ISOs from going lower than 100?
@JZL: Probably ask on the flickr Olympus E-system group.

comment Why is the blue channel the noisiest?
@Mattdm: Because Foveon sensors don't use mosaicing, and have equal amounts of sites for all three channels.

comment Why does a higher-end camera body like the Nikon D700 cost so much?
I don't buy that any of those things are more expensive for the higher-end cameras, given that almost all of it is off-the-shelf stuff. The exception is the larger sensors, which are probably more expensive to manufacture, due to manufacturing variation.

Unless the technology is exclusively used in the higher end cameras, there is no accounting justification for allocating a greater proportion of the price of the camera to R&D costs. Accordingly, amortisation of R&D costs cannot drive the higher price of the more expensive camera units.

Very informed - Olympus are faking out their users.

Presumably Foveon sensors do not exhibit this behaviour.

I seriously doubt that expensive DSLRs embody more advanced technology. If anything, for Nikon and Canon, who refuse to provide in-body stabilisation on the interchangeable-lense cameras, quite the reverse.
