If landscapes or cityscapes (i.e., non moving subjects) in bright light are your raison d'etre, and you're willing to use on Sigma's software, these cameras are probably a very good, but very specialized, tool.

If you can afford and justify having a separate camera for this limited use, then go for it. I really can't.

You can use the excellent manual focus capability (with distance scale) and set the camera up for street shooting no problem, and no focus lag, especially the DP1's.
