I have the DP2 Merrill on loan; the images are very nice, truly amazing - better than the other cameras I have at hand; Sony Rx-100, Samsung Ex1 and Canon EOS 20D. I think performance is ok, but RAW writing is slow. But... Battery life time is weak... I have a very early production model; might be better now. Could anybody give us some numbers on battery life time?

my #s are worse than Ricks. The one time I counted actual RAW+JPEG photos I got 27 RAW+JPEG sets on the battery. I've since bought Ricoh DB-65 original mfr batteries ($44.95 at Adorama) so I now have 4 batteries. Charged in the Sigma charger, fit fine in the camera. Work fine, but I haven't taken many new shots for a count.

Best regards, Sandy
