Sigma Merrill + Pentax 645D
Jul 21, 2013

I have a DP1M, DP2M and an Sd1M with several lenses - I love them all and I am able to get very good image quality from all of them.

The other day I bought a Pentax 645D 40MP medium format camera with 5 lenses.  It was a bit of an impulse buy, but the early results with it suggest the image quality one gets is at a whole new level. Although it does not have the freakish pixel sharpness you get from a foveon sensor, the high resolution sensor, plus the really excellent lenses produce wonderful high quality results that are just not possible from the Sigmas.  It is also brilliantly simple to use.

However, I expect I will still keep using the Sigmas - one thing the Pentax does not do is fit in my coat pocket!  The DP1 & 2Ms do - and i still take take them everywhere.
