One of the problems might be that DPReview prefer not to review cameras that will score poorly on their standard criteria. Only Sigma can remedy that by giving some attention to the operational characteristics.

"Please note that because of its unconventional sensor and feature set the SD1 is a difficult camera to score, and in some respects fits awkwardly alongside its peers when their scores are compared. As such (and as always) for a complete picture of how the SD1 performs, we encourage you to read this review in its entirety."

That is the text at the end of the SD-1 review. The DP-M cameras have substantially better handling and other aspects than the SD-1 (better LCD, faster write times, more immediate adjustment of controls).

Not to mention that the DP cameras focus speed and accuracy is now on par with most other contrast-detect focusing cameras.

There's no reason they couldn't have done a similar review for any of the DP-Merrill cameras.
