Ricoh GR & DP..Ms
In reply to Eugene232, 6 months ago

I have the Ricoh GR and ever had a DP3M. Sold the DP3M to get the DP2M instead for better street photography.

For fast and stealthy photography, Sigma can't beat Ricoh. Don't bother using DP..M for streets. It's not fast enough for that split second momentous shot. Ricoh is also much sharper for those actions. You can't miss with GR.

But if you want the most beautiful colours and details SIGMA foveon X3 is the only way to go. Not sure if Leica can beat the foveon sensor in colour renderings and details.

I have both galleries in my site:

The saxophone is a very interesting machine, but I'm more interested in music.
