  • From http://diglloyd.com/blog/2014/20140407_2-ReaderComment-SigmaDPMerrill.html: Each time I go out on a shot with these cameras its exciting and I can hardly wait to get back to see the results (...
  • Posted also on the Sigma Forum , should be interesting also here. http://www.massimocristaldi.com/blog/sony-a7r-35fe-and-sigma-dp3-merrill-the-nice-pair/ Best, Massimo

  • Created discussions dp3m and a7r - a nice pair
    http://www.massimocristaldi.com/blog/sony-a7r-35fe-and-sigma-dp3-merrill-the-nice-pair/ Looking forward for your feedbacks... M.
  • Defective! All the info on the screen are displayed but NOT the live image!!! And this after 10 shots... Tried to reset, changed battery... Sending it back to Amazon :(:( Really disappointed, I...
  • Just arrived. Very good quality, quite big, excellent display... Wow, so far I'm impressed. Looks better then the A7R in terms of perceived quality...

  • Someone who buys an A7R isn't going to be happy with the Merrills. Wait for the Quattro and see what it can do. Otherwise you might end up unhappy.  Hi Vince, thank you for the hint... I'm rather...

  • Thank you James... So you would say "GO"... Are those camera so SLOW, or more ore less similar to the A7R? What is really appealing now is the price...
  • Hi, Given the 500Euro price tag for the DP merrils now, I'm thinking to complement my A7R (that I use with the 35FE, metabones and canon17TSE ) with a DP2m or DP3m. For the same price of a single...
  • Last March I spent 10 days in Florida after the opening of a show in Miami. Together with my friend Leonardo we rented a couple of big, fat Harley Davidson and we went from Miami to Daytona Beach...
  • Commented on Fujifilm X100S Review preview

    Good review but the quality out of the camera is much better then the one you see here. Just grab a different RAW processor....

  • Replied in Hum.
    Thank you (and other) for so much interest on our articles @ The Visual Experience. The first aim of the two articles were meant to do just a "very basic" processing and results comparison, without...
  • Dave, very interesting. I have the X100s and love it (as I loved the x100). I'm tempted by the Sigma. Looks like the best lenses are on the DP2 and 3, with the DP1 being the less performant but...
