From imaging resource: a review of the DP1M. The reviewer tried to refrain from using the infamous 'c' word in referring to DPXM fans, even deliberately refraining from saying it during the initial paragraph of the 'shooting' section. But in the concluding remarks he called us out on the carpet.
All in all a nice review. Of course, the usual caveats remain: unmatched IQ up to ISO 400, miserable batteries yadda yadda yadda... The article compares images at various ISOs with cameras ranging from a Nikon Coolpix and Ricoh GR to a Sony RX1! You also can do your own peep-analysis using the site's neat 'comparometer' feature that lets you pixel peep side-by-side shots of identical images (the usual still life suspects) taken at reasonably close perspectives/distances (vis-a-vis the lens used) by cameras in their rather extensive database.*
Since it's a DP1M, the images on close inspection do point out the (truly) minor shortcomings of the 19mm f2.8 so I would really be curious to see how images taken with the DP2M and new DP3M would compare.

*Note: You can also do a side by side image comparison with up to FOUR cameras on DPreview as images taken with the DP1M are also in their data base as well (even though there's no formal review from them on it yet). Just pick a camera you'd like to check (like the RX1, for example) and go to the RAW IQ section where you can compare identical sections of an image taken with that camera along with others. All you do is move a rectangular patch about the shot and you can see how the camera's fare.
