dp2x purchase?
Mar 19, 2011

Dear reader,

Some background.

I am a film shooter with about 3 years of experience. My style of photography generally consists of walking around city / country with my camera shooting architecture and nature. My current gear is a nikon F3 with a 50 f1.8 pancake for the city and 20-35mm for landscapes.

I use Fuji reala 100 for color and Kodak tri-x 400 for monochrome. This week i have been painfully reminded that costs for buying, developing and scanning a roll of film have exceeded 10 euros / roll (I needed to have 8 processed). This has prompted me to finally consider digital as a cost effective alternative.

The question.

Keeping this background in mind would you recommend a dp2x for me? I am being offered a second hand dp2x for about 350 euros. I plan to use this as my primary walk-around camera and revert to film for more specialized role (long exposures / macro etc.)
Looking forward to your suggestions / help.
