Constraints of the main point of debate, the choice of 50mm
In reply to Roland Karlsson, Jan 9, 2013

Setting aside wishes for a very different product, the main issue seems to be the 50mm (equiv. to 75mm) focal length. The debate has been whether it is too short (and secondarily, whether the depth of field difference between f/2.8 and f/2 is crucial).

The DP3M lens adds 21 mm to the front of the camera compared with the DP2M. (That's also the amount added by a cheap metal lens hood attached to a DP2M.) The question seems to be, would a longer focal length make the whole object unwieldy? And would a lens of longer focal length have a diameter too wide for the body? Perhaps those who know the physics of lenses could comment.

As someone who crops much more often than I wish a wider lens had been available, I will buy the camera at a DP2M price, after the usual issues are vetted.

And Richard, you now have a bigger market for your wonderful grip!
