As someone considering moving "up" from a small sensor (Panny LX3) to at least APS-C size $1,000 would be a bit high but OK if--repeat IF--the Sigma DPm offers superb image quality, reliably superb IQ. Not just sometimes and usually that sometimes is via RAW only. From what I've seen Sigma's jpeg quality is very iffy, very iffy.

Its not the JPEG that is the problem. The conversion from RAW to RGB is VERY COMPUTING EXPENSIVE. And Sigma cannot afford designing a serious hardware accelerator for that task. So ... you have to take the RAW to your super computer at your desktop to be able to do a good rendition in a reasonable time.
