I am very interested in the DP2 Quattro and I will always take performance and function over looks and style, but really? I just checked it out on http://camerasize.com/compact/#456,454,534,532,ha,t

and it is quite repulsive to me. Anyone else? It wont stop me from buying it as long as it lives up to what I think it will.

The shape is unusual, and like other unusual shapes it takes getting used to.

Read the hands-on report here on DPReview, the comments below are very interesting - there are a lot more people who like the shape than I would have thought.

Also it can be the case, that some things you think look ugly in pictures actually look good in person (as any photographer knows!).  There are more than a few cars I've not liked in photographs but appreciated more in person.

I personally like things that are different, so to me the shape is appealing.  But I still want to see it in person before making up my mind.
