I notice that all of the samples were taken at ISO 100 or 200. Is that basically where you should stay to get the best out of the Foveon sensor? The samples don't really stand out like some I have seen from the existing DP models. Maybe the lighting conditions were a bit flat.

Yes, iso 100/200 is where the Foveon sensor shines. From my dp1/2 & SD14 experience iso 800 is for more emergency, eg colors are more muted, but also it depends on the light source. I had one night concert photo looked good at iso 800, given enough lighting on the stage. Other option for high iso is B&W. I don't know the new SD1 sensor eg how much high iso improved.
