I had a DPsomething for about a week. Found the AF to be horrific, so i sold it. But, this was the first camera to convince me there is something to the whole "3D" claims. There really is something in that sensor technology that imparts that kind of dimensionality in images (under the right conditions) — even in a couple of quick 'test' shots. I can see a bit of it in a few of the photos posted in this thread. I haven't tried one of the newer models — maybe the AF is better now?

I am glad I found this thread!

I have been using Sigma DP2 for about two years and like it very much! In most cases I select my F stop and pre focus the lens just like with film rangefinders I used to. And picture quality is amazing. Right now I am considering trading my Sigma SD14 DSLR for DP1x. Not that I vouldn't like the DSLR! I have another one if I want to change lenses. But this one stays home more often lately. I use SD14 with screw mount Takumars, Fujinon and Sonar lenses in aperture priority mode and slow writing speed doesn't bother me at all.

That's a tough call, I'd wait because the sigma dp1 merrill is due any day now. You might find a cheap DP1x on craigslist or RFF.

I have both a DP1 and a DP2x, the DP2x focuses 2x faster, writes 2x faster to the card, operates 2x faster......... but the DP1, 28mm, I don't see myself rushing to get shots with it. I think it suits me perfectly, it's just there when I need that wider angle.

The Merril's, i'm going to hold off until some used ones hit the market. I'm very satisfied with my DP's.

I am new to the world of Sigma. I bought an original, basically unused DP1 about a month ago and fell in love -so much so that I just took delivery of the new DP2M Merrill.

Here is one from the DP1.

Beautiful photo burancap, I just rediscovered the DP2 and I really like the B&W conversions.
I found these links while doing some research on the Foveon sensors.

Congrats, on that DP2M !

Thank you and thanks for the links! Lots of good stuff there. I will need to take my time and digest all of it.

The DP2M is spectacular in a lot of ways, but I still love that DP1! The only thing that will replace it will be the 1M when it ever makes it out.

As much as I felt liberated going from a M8 to a Nex and adaptor... I can say that the Sigmas have taken that liberation to another level. I haven't touched the Nex in weeks.

Hey, some great images here, thanks for posting!
They helped me to take the plunge into a used DP2 purchase.

Here's a couple from my first outing with my new-to-me DP2.

Good fun so far, but might take some time to get used to.

Still getting the hang of the Merrill. Here is one from yesterday. If you have the time... follow the link to Flickr and try the largest size available on the image...

I broke out my DP1 for the first time in ages at the Monterey Motorsports Weekend last week. I can never fault the images this little beast produces.

This one is from 2010. It's kind of hard to believe but the DP2 is a pretty nice street photography camera.

My own gear evolution, coming back to photography after 25 years away, meant that I was ripe for DPM and so those were my first purchases. But I did later acquire an dp1 for its 28mm, and it rides in the bag with the big brothers.

DP2 Merrill. I bought this camera some months ago, but I'm still wrangling with the colour. Maybe I'm expecting too much, but I was expecting the same DP1/2 3D translucency to the files, which this camera doesn't seem to have. But it does produce amazing images when you get things right.

Original DP1, all processed in SPP 3 or 4. The original cameras had a deliciously unique colour palette and way of handling highlights and shadows. Buying the DP1 made me stop using film for a long time.

Each year I take out the DP1 and DP2, but this year, I've been shooting with them more earnestly. Here are a few from the last few months.

Ha! just found the Sigma threads here... I have the DP2M and I think it's fantastic (but quirky).
