If the reports are correct that Sigma has a two year exclusive with the Foveon chip in their SLRs, I personally write off Foveon as an option. You'd have to buy only Sigma lenses with their SA mount. Even if the chip lives up to the early hyperbole and you decided to buy a Sigma system, in a couple of years the advantage would evaporate and you'd be stuck with lenses that have poor resale and not many buyers for the SA mount.

Aside from that, it makes sense to wait until the prices are pulled down by all the new DSLR options. I may even get a used one as the upgrade fever hits the big spenders...
