DPs not that small anymore

They have grown to the point where they are not really any smaller than their ILC competitors. As I said the DP3M is virtually the same size as a NEX 7 with a 50mm lens on it. So in the same pocket that I currently use for the DP I could have the NEX 7 with a lens on it, and then have a different lens in another pocket, which would be lighter, smaller and cheaper than carrying a second DP.

Also the 50 on the NEX would be f1.4 which gives me more flexibility for shallow DOF or low light work. I would like to have that option on a DP body

Also as I mentioned in my reply to Sandy - if Sigma come up with a better sensor, you would only need to upgrade the body to get that upgrade, which would be cheaper as you could re-use any lenses you had ...
