Excerpt: I've shot this camera for nearly two years (December 2012) and have found it to produce absolutely wonderful images. The machine itself has limitations which are worth dealing with to obtain those images.
Excerpt: I got this camera as a 'travel camera' and boy was it worth it. I was worried that the single focal length would cripple creativity well was I wrong. The lens is superb and the sensor captures such detail that you don't need a telephoto to zoom in.
Summary: For people who want to take snapshots, low-light shots, or sports photos, don't get this camera. If you want to experience the stunning resolution of a medium-format camera in a size that you can easily take on trip, this may be your best bet.
Summary: If you are looking for a camera to do it all this not the camera you are looking for. Its auto focus will fail you, it can't zoom, it takes forever to process to card, you need to carry a pocket full of batteries, and sometimes the coulors are weird. So why did I buy this camera?
Summary: Yes, as everybody says, the pictures are sharp, if only sharpness was everything about pictures. I purchased the original DP2 more than 4 years ago. While I knew DP2 was a sloooowwww camera I didn't expect four years later Sigma to struggle with the same problems and at $1000.
Excerpt: I have a Sigma DP2 Merrill in August 2012, and have taken well over a thousand photos with it so far. This is truly an amazing camera, and as much as I loved my Canon G11 (I'm an enthusiast, by the way, not a professional photographer), the G11 has sadly been relegated to a mere backup camera.
Excerpt: Here's the blog and photos.. http://iwillsavetheearth.blogspot.com/2012/10/first-impressions-of-sigma-dp2-merrill.html Problems: -weak battery last about half an hour and roughly 32 plus exposures. -Sigma flash needed as it has no built-in flash -poor design of USB door
Summary: Had the camera for a few days through the Sigma Test program. As a previous user of Sigma Dp1 (Original), and Dp2M. was interested on seeing what changed for better an for worse. Some first impressions as compared to Dp2M. 1. Camera is much more responsive, faster shot to shot times. 2.
