Why Were the DP1/2 not more Popular?
Aug 15, 2012

I printed some pics today at 12X18 and they looked wonderful. I'm absolutely impressed by the IQ of the DP2. After coming from an EPL1-- a great camera in its own right but with IQ clearly inferior in good light-- the DP2 seems like it would have sold more than it did. I don't find the AF to be too slow but then again I'm not coming from a DSLR. The focal length is great, albeit fixed.

But people rarely seem to entertain these cameras as alternatives to the NEX, M43, Fuji X100s of the world. Why? Is it the lack of low light capability? Or perhaps the slow AF before the firmware fix? Or the lack of features?

In any case, I love the camera. The colors, sharpness, etc.
