The beginning of the end for Sigma's DP1?

http://www.dpreview.com/news/0809/08091202panasonic_DMC_G1.asp

Looks like Panasonic released their micro 4/3 a lot faster than people expected. How will Sigma compete with a company like Panasonic? Panny cranks out new cameras year after year while Sigma is still in their planning stages.

It's only a matter of time before Sigma will lose most of their business. The ONLY competetive advantage they have at this point is their sensor but that won't be enough for them to stay in business. In fact, the sensor is not even an exclusive since anyone can buy from Foveon.
