$1k for SD1M or DP2Q
3 months ago

Hi, I just want to have people's opinion on an $1,000 budget at this timing, whether it's better to go for a used SD1M (the ones from Japan are so cheap!) or a new DP2Q. Thanks.

I have been a DP2S user for three years and really love the Foveon color and image quality. I acquired a SD14 and three basic SA lenses (50mm/2.8, 10-20mm, 18-200mm) in April, and had some pleasing shots so far this summer. Now I'm ready for trying out a newer generation.

I've been reading all the reviews and comparisons between the M and Q generation, and they are really, just different, not comparable, in many ways. To me the biggest advantage of getting the SD1M is the ability of shooting ultra wide with the 10-20mm I already have. As for DP2Q, it might bring me back to the days with just a smaller camera to carry around (even though it's significantly bigger than DP2S).

Any opinion appreciated!
