You may love it, but I found it just too hard to deal with it's problems

Shane O. Laake "camera nerd", Amazon
4 September 2014
  • Summary: This is a hard camera to review, as the strengths (low ISO image quality) are so strong and the weaknesses (they are legion) are so hard to cope with. If you've used a recent Sigma and more or less liked it, you probably will love this. Most other users however will likely return it.

pistyllphoto, DP Review

  • Excerpt: The recent price crash of this camera made it very attractive. It was bought specifically for use as a landscape camera to complement my carry anywhere Olympus EM 5. It lives up to its reputation for quirkiness and delivering the most amazing picture quality at low ISO.

Sharp but flat

Llewellyn Bradford, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • Summary: If you value sharpness, texture, and detail over luminance, color, and flexibility - then this is a great camera. Otherwise, I'd recommend another camera. I tested this camera for a while, but ultimately returned it and got a used Canon 5d (Mark i/classic).

So close but so far.

  • Summary: Let me first start off by letting you know that I really wanted to like this camera. I have used Nikon DSLRs(d200,d300,d700) for about the past 7 years, and have longed for a camera that was not like bringing a set of weights along with me.

not there yet

Roman Budzianowski "software guy", Amazon
3 July 2009
  • Summary: I wanted to give it 2 stars, but the picture quality is very good indeed. I wanted it to replace my old Nikon D100 when traveling, but DP2 is unusable in many situations. Here are my issues: 1.

IQ is the selling point, everything else is compromised.

PDE "colourme", Amazon
11 June 2012
  • Summary: The outstanding feature is the image quality obtained from the foveon sensor. Everything else has drawbacks. The processing is too slow. Focusing is too slow. Video is not worth the effort. The battery issue is a complete joke.

  • Excerpt: Для камеры хорошо снимающей только при ярком освещении цена мегазавышена.
  • Pros: Супердетализация снимков
  • Cons: Умеет снимать только при хорошем освещении Видео никакое. Автоматического режима для фото считай тоже нет. Часто уход цвета в зелень при казалось бы идеальных условиях Картинка на дисплее не имеет ничего общего с последующим снимком - всякий раз сюрприз. Фокус 30мм дает хоть и небольшие, но завал...

De belles photos...quand on y arrive

The Geekfather, Amazon
2 May 2012
  • Summary: Dans des conditions de lumière parfaites les photos sont inégalables, proches du moyen format et de l'argentique. Mais il est TRÈS lent et la qualité se perds dès qu'on n'est plus à 100 iso. Les fichiers bruts sont énormes (45Mo!) et à un format propriétaire pas très pratique.
