The Audacity of (Foveon) Hope

It's been a few days of new pictures and hands-on user reviews of the Sigma DP1, so let's see what the blogo-photo-sphere and the forum-sphere think about it!

Some users in the Sigma forum at dpreview are asking: Is the DP1 revolutionary? Is this irrational exuberance or are we witnessing the start of the renaissance of advanced non-dSLRs?

Ryttertalk's on-going first impressions review has generated a lot of forum buzz! Here are discussions of day one, and day two.

And is the DP1 just the vanguard of an army of Sigma DP models? The Sigma founder told Amateur Photographer UK Informer that a DP2 and DP3 are coming later on, one possibly with a zoom lens.

This dpreview forum discussion discusses Foveon sensors and low light.

The Sigma DP1 sample pictures are vigorously discussed in the non-denominational dpreview News forum. Seventy-seven replies later, what do you think?

And what do the forum users at DSL reports think?

And what do non-Sigma owners think of the DP1?
