Sigma DP1 Merrill vs Sony RX1

Hello

Long time lurker, first time posting.

I am looking to get a camera (my Samsung S20 is my only current digital camera) and have narrowed it down to these two. I have previously owned an RX1 with the EVF and was mostly happy with it. I now really only shoot slow paced landscapes and still life, but a little flexability wouldn't hurt. However, there is a DP1M available at my local camera store that has me intrigued,. It seems that the image quality, at least at low ISO, is raved about. I shoot mostly B&W and I have also read that the Foveon sesnor is particularly well suited to this. I have also read that it is tedious to work with, but having owned Hasselblad, Pentax and Rolleicord (considering developing and scanning), I cannot see that the inconvenience could be that bad. I do prefer to work more methodically. Any input on the comparitive resolving power of these two cameras would be appreciated.

I should say that the RX1 with EVF that I am looking to purchase is similar in price to the DP1 Merrill.
