This rumor we keep hearing that Sigma has exclusive rights to market the Foveon chip is apparently not true. Foveon's own website denies it. Not sure how the false report got started but I went to the manufacturer site to check it out.

Question
Will other camera manufacturers besides Sigma be announcing products with Foveon X3 technology?

Answer
Foveon does not have an exclusive agreement with Sigma and is actively engaged with other major digital camera manufacturers. As partnerships are formed and can be made public, Foveon will provide more details.
