    Probably not untill the production units show up in the hands of the
    reviewers and others.
    Could be a semi-gimmick like the Fuji double megapixel files where there's
    some slight improvement but not double........or maybe it's a significant
    step forward.
    It would seem, that with an additional vector in the color space, you should
    be able to get some more accuracy out of the color in each pixel........

    We'll see soon enough.
