Reinhard136: ......... I would have thought that of all people sigma would have an idea how to install a decent zoom lens, or at least make it interchangeable, in multi mounts would get them a few sales ...... or is there some non compete clause out there they have to sign ?

If you want interchangeable lenses and zooms you should buy their DSLR. The

DP line concept was from the start a pocketable camera with the most awesome prime lens one could get.

Sad to see this camera is not pocketable.

Any hint of focus peeking?

That is really ugly and uncomfortable.

peevee1: They should have higher resolution in Green, not in blue. Only about 5% of cones in our eyes are responsive to blue light. We are adopted to see detail in green foliage, not in a blue sky.

Contrary to the marketing, the sensor layers are white, yellow and magenta not blue green and red.

qwertyasdf: 20+4.9+4.9 = 39? I don't get it!

If the grip is facing backwards, then the thumb needs to exert pressure to hold the camera. How can i use my thumb to press the buttons on the back?
I just tried holding my Canon 1D backwards, it dropped on the ground.
(But the scrollwheel, which is now in the front is very convenient for the index finger to turn)
Am I holding it wrong? I don't get it

Anyways, I'm gonna get it no matter what! ByeBye DP2M

I tried simulating the grip with my stapler. My conclusions are that you do not actually hold the camera with the thumb but rather the fingers and your palm because you want your index finger to be free to maneuver the dials

Kid Plutonium: Yes, quite an interesting post.
It makes me think of one particular phenomenon I've noticed on a number of forums in which commentators sign off with a long list of all their cameras and lenses. Why?

According to the article, being a fanboy to your current gear seems to be one of the curating steps from GAS.

You keep your camera in a bag? What does it do in a bag? I thought cameras was for taking photographies.

I love my newly acquired Canon EOS 100D, The small and light design combined with a 40mm pancake lens makes the camera really easy to travel with.

The camera is responsive and easy to work with, producing images with great quality in my amateur opinion.
