I got this camera as a 'travel camera' and boy was it worth it. I was worried that the single focal length would cripple creativity well was I wrong. The lens is superb and the sensor captures such detail that you don't need a telephoto to zoom in. I've been a foveon enthusiast for years but even I was surprised at the huge and very noticable difference in quality between this camera and the Canon G10 that my partener carried. Not just in resolution but in the crispness, and clarity of the ...

So far I have used the clunky Sigma pro software for basic processing and then imported the hight=est quality TIFF in to LR 5. Overall a very good addition to my cameras. ...

I have been using this handy sized camera for aerial fotography in the mountains. Since then I left my DSLR at home. I usually have good lightening conditions ISO ranging between 100...400. The images are really sharp not that kind of sharpness resulting from algorithms but natural sharpness on pixel level. Each pixel has its own color information. So you might see a gray pole just one pixel width in front of green trees. It makes fun to take pictures just because of the level of detail. And ...

I have a Sigma DP2 Merrill in August 2012, and have taken well over a thousand photos with it so far. This is truly an amazing camera, and as much as I loved my Canon G11 (I'm an enthusiast, by the way, not a professional photographer), the G11 has sadly been relegated to a mere backup camera. The DP2 Merrill seems comparable to a mini medium-format camera: the images produced are absolutely stunning in their detail and rich colors. I initially worried that the lack of a zoom lens or the ...
