Hmmm, might have to hold off on the X-T1 and DP1M purchases. Very interesting. Unique body design for sure. Any more info anywhere?

What a Bizarre camera, is that really comfortable to hold?

Is the viewfinder screen smaller on this version?

If it s true, looks like a big delusion. Orrible design, looks like a bad version of the Sony next. And, same sensor plus same focal length...I won t understand the need for this replacement, seriously.

Re: NEW DP QUATTRO is coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe True III processor is faster than the dual True II processors and requires lesser battery and the battery has become larger and have longer life. Perhaps the True III also includes neat features like focus peaking.

But the design makes me really sceptical. Perhaps I should simply get the DP2 Merrill for a low price while I still am able to.

I love the design! Seem pretty confortable. And the battery seems bigger! There is no longer the "rubber slot" for external alim so the battery life should be increased....

I hesitate between the DP2M and waiting for the newer quattro... If they use focus peaking and phase detection AF + good until 1600 ISO + battery is correct, it may be a great one!.. at least for me!

A higher perfomance processor might enable the use of cleaner higher ISO sensitivities.

Re: NEW DP QUATTRO is coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks fake. Why now 58mm threads? Lens OS? Battery door also looks very strange if you are going to put a battery in there. SD card is places more or less over the sensor?

Why only computer generated image of the VF?

If it is real it is interesting.

SD card is on the other sidedoor.

Man that's ugly..
I wonder what the quattro implies. If it's only a faster processor I don't see any need for it.
The lenses are already great op the DPM's so if the sensor is new and much improved then it
might be interesting.

Well, dual control wheels and faster processing sounds like a good start to me...

Why? Looks like a nice idea.

And there is a flaw on the left hand side of the lens base.

I really hope this is fake, the design really took me by surprise and not in a good way.

I can give you three reasons

  1. It is ugly. Looks like the Hasselblad abominations.
  2. It is too long. You can't carry it around comfortable, and you cannot even have it in a large jacket pocket.
  3. Where do you plan to hold the right thumb? There is a strange focus button "collar" that will cut your thumb to pieces.

The only advantage I can see is that, if they have put the tripod mount far too the left, then the grip far to the right will give you a super steady grip with a monopod.

Re: NEW DP QUATTRO is coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That certainly is courageous. And might work too, although I fear for the right-hand lug's position.

But if the camera body is not at least as tall as the lens is wide, they can go to hell. Of course, if low-light IQ, AF-speed or write-time is improved, I will follow hot on their heels

Pocketing will be cumbersome.

…so you are not going to buy one, then?
