I used that very same expression myself about the DPs last week

I want the Foveon sensor - perhaps I didn't make that clear enough in my original post - but I also want it in a more versatile body. I know I'm being greedy, but every other camera maker offers more versatility in a similar sized package, some in smaller ones now the DPs have grown and have fixed lenses.

I was just amazed when I compared the DP and NEX together as I would have bet money before about how much bigger the NEX was, but apart from grip depth they are virtually identical. If Sony can put so much into a certain size why can't Sigma ?

It's partly because the Foveon sensor is costing more than the Sony sensor. This leaves less money for other features such as a hinged LCD, if the price is not to get too high.
