How does the Merrill compare to 24MP APS-C?

Spent the last couple of days looking over videos, threads, and blogs about the Sigma Foveon cameras. They aren't terribly expensive on the used market, but I'm wondering how much nicer a DP1M or DP2M would be for B&W or street shooting compared to my X-T20 with 35/1.4. There's the obvious aperture difference, and I've read plenty about the speed, raw development, battery life, high iso, etc. None of that is of particular concern, since I'm interested in it for the quirks and image quality. What I am wondering is how it would compare to the "pop" or "microcontrast" of the X-trans cfa and some of the Fuji lenses like the 35/1.4 or 56/1.2 (or the 18, that I've never handled). I've looked at jpegs and downloaded a couple of x3f files and the sigma converter, but it's hard to compare when I can't duplicate the same images with my camera.
