dp2 lens quality ?
Jun 11, 2009

Hi All!

I am new to this forum, and I can't thank you enough for the amazing quality of this forum, which you are all responsible for.

Now, I seriously intend buying a DP2.

The improvements over the DP1 seem substantial, as proved by the numerous pictures (especially in color accuracy). And I like the 41-mm better.

BUT... after looking at a lot of pictures provided in this forum, It seems that the DP2 presents a slight cyan fringing, maybe due to chromatic aberration, which the DP1 didn't showed. I may sound a little picky, but chromatic aberration is what prevented me from buying a G10, for instance.

So, have the users of the DP2, who previously owned the DP1, noticed this, or am I just imaginating things?

here is an example: look at the fifth image, at the left corner:
