Although I agree the DP Merrills are superior to Bayer cameras, I will still be standing by for a full frame CSC/ILC from Samsung, when they come out with such a camera, maybe by next year.

Full frame Sigma? Why?  Aren't 55 megabyte files already big enough?

Because I know, Sigma is too arrogant, or cash strapped, or whatever.....maybe they don't care about profit/users/would-be users, who knows, but they will be taking a God awful LONG TIME to "upgrade" their Foveon system and give us a bigger sensor that addresses all the current problems of the present Foveon (especially at high ISO), as well as give us a ILC/CSC of the rangefinder type.

Who is willing to bet?

PS: And I will not be buying all 3 DPMs just to lug them around ala interchangeable camera style. No way....I love Sigma images, but I will not be buying any, at their present incarnations.

I bet 3 Sigma DP compacts is very similar in size to a mirrorless camera like the Fuji X-E1 and 3 lenses.  Not much difference there and you lose the benefit of a lens perfectly mated to the sensor.
