For me it's not only the foeveon sensor, it's the simplicity of the Sigma cameras too. When I use the SD1 Merrill or the Sd Quattro I feel like I'm back to using my old Canon F1N only without the film. No bells or whistles - just straight forward photography.
I agree also re: Keith's assessment and Mike's. I'd add that I very much like the way these cameras slow everything down. The whole process of exposure and processing feels much more akin to using film gear. I love the Sigma for that... and the wonderful image quality of course.
