In my opinion it is hard to justify a SD1M purchase (unless you have a collection of excellent SA lenses). I do not see much hope for Sigma in the DSLR territory at the current price point.

The DPx Merrills look like a much better bang-for-buck to me.

What you are saying makes as much sense as saying the cost of watercolor paints compared to oil is different, therefore one is the clear choice.

If you want the best of both, buy a D800 and all of the DP-M cameras instead of lenses.
