There has been a lot of hoopla about this camera for the past few years. They originally announced it 2006, and then again in 2007, but it never came out from production.
I love the Foveon sensor that it uses. I think that it is the ultimate portrait sensor. I wish that Canon and Nikon would use this type of sensor on some of their cameras. The output is simply outstanding.
The big question is how much will the camera sell for? I think that it will be on the order of $1000 or more.
On the down side, this is definitely NOT a camera for stock photography. Although they advertise the camera as 14 MP, it is only 2652 x 1768 or 4.7 MP. The 14 MP comes from the fact that the sensor has 3 separate layers (Red, Green, and Blue) to capture light.
