Sigma's new compact DP1 is a photographer's dream. A compact point and shoot with the qualities of an SLR. With a 14 megapixel sensor the same size as entry level and intermediate SLRs using Foveon X3 technology, It's sure to provide excellent image quality. The Sigma 16.6mm f4 lens (28mm equivalent) is a fantastic choice for a compact camera like this allowing a wide range of photographic possibilities. Although, I personally, would like to have seen an aperture of f2.8. With an ISO range of 100-800 it is a little limited in low light situations, but definitely usable. Altogether, it looks like an excellent camera. It is slated to arrive in the spring of 2008. I have not, at this time however, seen any info on pricing. For more info go to Sigma's site or to the nice flash site dedicated to the DP1.
