I posted a comment on that article asking whether DPReview would ever review any of the Sigma DP cameras (http://www.dpreview.com/news/2013/6/20/just-posted-ricoh-gr-review-compared-to-nikon-coolpix-a?comment=2621310990).

Richard Butler's reply: "And it's unlikely we will, to be honest.

I will be writing about my experiences of using it and discussing the advantages and disadvantages of it, compared to the Ricoh and Nikon."

Later on: "We would like to review everything and would like to be able to cover the DP series in more depth, but there are always too many cameras. That's exactly why I'm hoping to write an article about the DP1 Merrill."

Sad, really. While there are (too) many cameras released all the time, there are very few significant cameras released.

It's really odd.  It just makes no sense to review every minor camera update under the sun and ignore a whole system that is really unique.

Even when they don't like some aspects of a system it's really helpful to have things like reference shots taken the same way as other cameras.

I guess at this point there are enough reviews around of the DP cameras that it kind of doesn't matter, but I do feel like it has to impact sales to some degree to have no reviews on DPReview.
