Excellent! Really enjoyed it. Lots more in this vein please... Instructive, entertaining, and fun. And clearly the IQ is there to see in this camera. Thank you DPreview.
Interesting that the wide angle Sigma DP1 Merrill gives the others a run for their money... Including the Leica Q. Try looking at the corners of the playing cards and compare the IQ there.
Not entirely clear that this is for Nikon F to M4/3 (as the article seems to indicate ) or Nikon G (which is the manufacturers line......???
To update a three and a half year old review a little, as a recent convert to the Foveon sensor in this Sigma (albeit in the DP2 Merrill iteration) I can testify that the latest Sigma Raw processing software, Photopro 6.3, which is used for the SD1 Merrill as well ithe DP2, does not leave much to be desired, at least to a relative newcomer to Raw processing. And this running on Windows 7 on an ancient Core 2 Duo at 2.66Ghz with 4 Gb of memory. There may be frustrations for those who wish to devote more time to arcane debate than taking shots, but on the whole Photpro6.3 hits the spot. Hats off to Sigma....
These combinations have total weights of around two kilos or over four and a half pounds. Dunno about glass from the fires of Mordor but my PL 25mm 1.4 on an M10 plus a 60mm Sigma and 20mm 1.7 does not put my back out after a few hours...
Pricing should be:
The Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) will be available in early May for £5750 / €7200
According to Photography blog.
Is this the same sensor as the Nikon D610, 750 et al?
Theelderkeynes: This list is a disaster and DP should rerun it. Heaven knows how they came up with this parade, presumably after a very long lunch. Perhaps they can be explicit about how they (a) came up with the list selection and (b) how they missed such stars as the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM "A". I have no axe to grind, I'm a micro 4/3 user. Transparency must be made complete here. A failure to open up the selection criteria to scrutiny leaves DPReview with a lack of credibility.
And (finally!) as a micro 4/3 user, whither the Tamron 14-150mm F/3.-5.8 Di III? Dispenses with the need for several lenses and is well priced. M4/3 users dream, but not listed... Having tried it in the past week I feel it deserves a mention.
Point (b) taken, thankyou. Noted also that the 'curated' and thus apparently definitive list was deemed incomplete and the Sony Vario Tessar T* FE 16-35mm added later. But thanks for the reply.

Excellent as always! Thankyou DPReview.
The Oly M10 looks sharper to me especially when you raise the ISO levels. And also in the corners, so maybe the Sony lens is also a bit iffy compared to whatever was on the M10.
The site is a bit of a dog too - verrrrrrryyyyy slowwwwwwwww.....
Theelderkeynes: Olympus have now posted the much awaited anti-shock firmware 1.1 upgrade for the OM-D E-M10 here:
This implements electronic first curtain below 1/320 sec shutter speed, thus reducing vibration, in theory, from the shutter.
Perhaps comnsumer pressure does work!
The download happens automatically once you have downloaded the Olymus updater software and connected your camera. I suggest you read the instructions carefiully. It is very straightforward. Read the instructions on updating.
Its there under downloads for M10 here:
Yes see the news item on the software update for the E-M5

Maybe its my eyes but not for the first time the 'equivalent aperture comparison chart' has alll the accessibility and user friendliness of a freeze dried parrot. Minute colour differences compounded by thin lines make it darn near impossible to interpret. Do better Dpreview, make some of the lines dots, some broken, some a mixture and/or make them thicker and don't make the colours very alike. Then we might be able to understand it a bit better. Better still let your designer loose on the problem but please sort it out! Soon....
