Sigma dp2m against Nikon, Nex, and Olympus

http://soundimageplus.blogspot.it/20...rt-1-four.html

U can judge for yourself. It is an interesting set of comparisons. In part one he compares dp2m with Nikon d600, Olympus omd, and Sony nex7.

In part 2 he changes comparison to two cameras. Dp2m and Nikon 800e.

The DP2m is capable of insane sharpness and clarity for its size. I've recently compared a DP2m 20x30" print to a M9 w/ 35mm C-Biogon 20x30" print and the Sigma was indeed the winner in the clarity and sharpness department. Amazing camera that most people will never bother with. I'm glad I did. At this point, the only thing that bothers me is there is no LR support.

It would be interesting if Sigma did a foveon body in m4/3 standard and/or improve their Speed & compatibility results.

But why bother with M4/3 when they already have APS-C?

Gonna beat a dead horse but if the Sigma had a viewfinder I would have got one awhile a go; well, and maybe a better designed body would be good too. I find the sensor samples are the best colours I've seen.

I'm making finder for my DP1 from 28mm film P&S and probably will add Franiec grip closer to spring. Nothing is perfect under sun but when X3F sensor talks I feel like when I droke Mk1 GTI Cabrio, "woohoo this thing isn't prettiest but it delivers!".
