Still in love the original DP1
Dec 31, 2012

Despite using the Nikon D800E and Zeiss lenses a lot now, I can't help but going back to the original first version DP1.

It is slow but love the simplicity of the body / lens / sensor combination. Have it in my jacket all the time. PP in Photoshop and Lightroom once you know what to look out for is a breeze.

The shot below was taken today at my lunchbreak in the City of London - love how sharp the lens is even wide open (some minor PP the blue cast is deliberate).

Very temped to buy the new DP1M but somehow disappointed with the new sensor noise and how shadows appear almost black and white even when Chroma Noise reduction is turned all the way down. The original DP1 seems to be a lot cleaner with no NR smearing despite Chrome Noise appearing but this can usually be corrected very easily in PP.

Can anyone convince me that the DP1M is a worthwhile replacement ?
