Shootout: Sigma DP2 Merrill vs Sony RX100 (Dolls)

Under ideal conditions with technically solid exposure and focus and processing, what kind of results are possible with each camera given a quality exposure, and processed from RAW with suitable sharpening for each?

Camera details

The Sigma DP2 Merrill is an APS-C camera with a Foveon true-color sensor. Each photosite is a true red/green/blue pixel capable of a full RGB value.

The Sony RX100 is a 20-megapixel compact with a conventional Bayer-matrix sensor utilizing a RGGB matrix (1/2 green, 1/4 red, 1/4 blue) photosites. Interpolation (demosaicing) is required to generate an RGB value for a pixel.
