-innovative Foveon X3 sensor technology
-huge sensor for such compact body
-superb color depth
-extreme resolution comparable to "modern" 12-16mpix cameras with 1/2.33 sensors or even 1/1.6
-clean captures at iso50 and iso100 (entry dslr level)

Sigma Dp1x is a fine-tuned version of Dp1s. In general, this is a second (all-around) camera of landscape photographer, like me:) I was looking for such camera whole of my life. It is a camera for me. I even like it more that 4/3 cameras for unique color of Foveon sensor

RATING: 8 OF 5 STARS!! :)

ps I think that, if Sigma can release big sensor using Foveon technology in near future Bayer technology will fade away in no time:)

Problems:
The only one TRUE downside is weird "color render" under synthetic illumination, but this issue easily corrected in raw-converter (you shoot in raw right?:))

-bad and slow automatics (no need for true photographer)
-fix lens (many people position this as downside, i don`t agree with this opinion, fixed lens only change the style of photography)
-no image stabilization (for landscape photography it is not an issue)
-low-resolution display
