Here's an interesting development, wonder what the impact is going to be for DSLR's. Looks like a major change is on the way.

I am watching them very closely. As announced it will be introduced in gadgets (mobile phones) at the end of this year.

What is expected is to have better results in lower light with that tiny lenses.

I expect first DSLR cameras with this technology to come out in next year if Nikon didn't started to do something regarding their stance in upgrading D700 as answer to Canon's new series of cameras.

Great news is that quantum film sensors are 2x more sensitive to light than CMOS. That means we'll soon have possibility to shoot without noise at ISO 6400 and up! What is more great is that new sensors will cost much less than today's silicon sensors ;-)

So, soon we'll have full frame 24MP cameras for not more than $1500 with tendency to see more megapixels, less noise and lower prices!

Interesting.

I too am keeping an eye of this, but I'm not buying the hype as of yet.
Remember that the Foveon sensor was supposed to be more film like and give better resolution per pixel.
That didn't pan out as planned.

I would love for this to be the real deal, but only time will tell.
For now I'll just have to scratch by with my 21 megapixel CMOS sensor  ;D

Actually, the foveon sensors produce the best detail i've ever seen. 
The reason the cameras with foveon sensors didn't have the expected success is due to the low resolution. (images captured at 3 x 4 mpx - one color for each pixel- , but the final output is 4 mpx max).
