  • I encourage you to get a 645D.  I bought a 645D kit two and a half years ago which came with 5 mint FA lenses, and I have since bought a 150mm 3.5 lens for $100.  The one irony is that the price ...
  • Regarding the sensor being faulty or otherwise - no matter which Merrill camera I would have used for the first shot, or the interior shot I posted later - the result would have been the same. All ...
  • I think it is.  I have three Merrill cameras.  SD1M, DP2M & DP1M.  They all do it at different times but it is only really obvious against surfaces like grey carpet, bitumen etc.  And I think ...
  • Many thanks to all who have tried to help, especially to Mike, Meuh, Roland & Lin. I will try the all of the techniques suggested. Blotching is an issue that comes up with me often. I am an ...
  • There was nothing important about the driveway as such, but shaded bitumen, grey to dark grey carpet on interiors, etc so often have awful magenta blotching. Below is a screen grab from this ...
  • Created discussion thread Merrill blotching - help please
    Attached is a photo which has a good example of why many of my Merrill pictures are hard work to repair, or unsalvageable. The photo is a dull picture, but one I needed to use for work. You can see ...
  • Very well done.  I would be interested in how you set it up & took the pictures.
  • It is a difficult lens sometimes because of focussing.  I have no idea how anyone can manually focus with it - it is so wide & the SD1M screen/viewer is not exactly large.  Relying on the ...
  • I have the SD1M and the 35mm 1.4.  It is an excellent lens, sharp and it yields great colour and contrast. I have not got around to getting the zoom, but I will.  It is considered one of the all ...
  • A good post with interesting comments. I agree with most of your comparisons.  I have an SD1M, two DPXMs and a Pentax 645D with 5 lenses.  In terms of IQ and resolution, the Pentax wins hands down ...
  • There is an excellent review of the new Leica on the subscription only Reid Reviews website. He tests it against the earlier Leica Monochrome and the Sigma SD1M with the new 24mm 1.4 lens. It is a ...
  • I suggest you look at the Reid Reviews website for a comparison between the quattro and merrill sensor Sigmas.  It is a subscription only website, but is well worth the annual fee which is not a lot. ...
  • I really wish they would release an DP0M. 14mm wide would be excellent. I much prefer the Merrill IQ overall than the Quattro. edit: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/sigma-dp0-quattro/sigma-dp ...
