I have a DP1 and I love it. For me at this point in time, there is no
equal to it.

Anyhow I'd buy a DP2 (and probably most people) if the following
issues where improved:

  • Foremost!!!! Autofocus!!! Something as fast as an entry level DSLR.

Yes, this is important.

  • Resolution: 10mp Foven, chip size of 35mm film, would yield IQ far

beyond anything in the market right now.

Unreasonable expectation (even for Sigma's next DSLR, much less DPx). This is technically and financially improbable in the immediate future and even if they could engineer it with current technology it would probably make the camera cost prohibitive.

  • Better LCD.

Yup.

  • Better response time (shutter lag, LCD lag), as fast as entry level

DSLR.

Or at least as fast as a good P&S.

  • JPEG + RAW files.

  • The current 28mm lens is great, but if they could do an F2.8 lens..

Then it would be perfect. And if Sigma could make interchangeable
lens system, then it'd be the holy grail of digital photography for
me.

The lens will almost certainly not be interchangable and would be pointless if it were unless Sigma came out with a special line of ultraslim lenses designed specifically for this new camera...which again, is very unlikely.

There are other improvements to be done of course, but with the above
listed features, I can't think of any other camera that would get
close to this "would be" DP2.

PLEASE DON'T ADD ANYTHING ELSE TO THIS POST, JUST SAY YES! IF YOU'D
BUY ONE.

As with many of your other expectations, the expectation that nothing else to this post will be added except "yes" is far too optimistic.

Let's see how many people in this forum would buy this DP2.

Tell me what it costs first.

Cheers

Cheers!
