What they have decidedly done (released) instead: is one of the most interesting digital sensors in around, and put some of their very best glass in front of it - and essentially then called it a day...or a DP1/2M. Paying $1000 buck for basically just the sensor and the lens in front of it (no matter how good either of them are individually, or together) won't ultimately cut it with what the best of the rest in compact digital imaging have to offer..

The Zeiss 24mm lens for Sony costs more on its own than the DP2M , so to get a top class lens with a free high resolution sensor thrown in is not a bad deal.

Also, Sigma are quite good at putting out regular firmware upgrades, so features could be added in the future.
