DP2x not really needed?

The question I ask is is the DP2(s,m,q) a useful addition to the Sigma DP line?

I bought a DP2M myself and its a beast of a camera! But it seems to me that the 30mm F2.8 is not that useful at all. It can produce great landscape shots but it is to narrow compared with the DP1. It is good for close portrait but I can imagine that the DP3 is a better portrait cam. And when I look at the forums it seems to me a lot of people own a DP1 followed by DP3 but very few use a DP2.

So where does the DP2(M) shine? Where is the strong side of this great camera?

Maybe Sigma should rethink their lineup. 35mm F1.8 (F1.4) anyone? Or a 23mm F2.8? Wouldn't that be more useful?
