Excerpt: Only just received this camera so only had a chance to do a few quick test shots. Stunning picture quality as expected but these were only a few quick shots of daughters dog chasing her cats and a few of some daffodils just starting to flower. Battery life just has to be better than the DP3m.
Summary: Purchased used to try out the Sigma/Foveon combo. Image quality is far beyond what you normally get from a point and shoot. In fact, it is better than many DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras. The camera is designed to shoot RAW and process in Sigma's proprietary software (free to download).
Summary: I love this camera. The pictures are truly excellent and I enjoy taking the time to figure out how to set up the various shots. Like film cameras, it can take some time to get the shot set up to take advantage of all the elements you want to see in the photo and so a tripod is very necessary.
Sent a bad product and no apology, not impressed by the company, the product I got elsewhere and it is fine.

Summary: I was sent a defective unit, sent it back with an explanation and that I had talked to the factory folks. Not even the courtesy of a reply...Did purchase one from the company at Sigma, reconditioned by them for the same price roughly....it works.
Summary: The DP2s is a camera with a unique sensor but with antiquated performance and many negatives.Simply put, the camera performs well under good, natural light at low ISO (no more than ISO 400). The camera performs horribly in low light or artificial light.
Summary: Long story short I have had a DP2 for about four years now. A week ago died and decided to fork $1k for the Merrill version. Great camera but the contrast was way too strong for my taste. I really couldn't stand that camera and retuned it to Adorama after only two days.
Summary: I love this small camera. I especially like that you can take 3 shots at different exposures and the convert to HDR. Just don't buy the external viewfinder. You can see thru it just fine, but it doesn't show focus so you have to look at the screen anyway if you are trying to manual focus.
Summary: Others have given very good reviews of this camera, both positive and negative. What hasn't been said is that with this camera you'll feel like a fool. Although it looks very neat, to the uninformed it will look like some $50 P&S.
Summary: I bought this camera after reading several reviews. I wanted a small (feature packed) camera that had manual controls. Here are some of my short thoughts on this camera and why I have rated it the way that I have. Form Factor: The camera is unquestionably small.
Summary: I bought the DP2s with limited information as all who buy it probably has. The concept of capturing all three RGB values at each pixel for true color without interpolation is something that I think most experienced photographers can appreciate.
