Hi, I just want to have people's opinion on an $1,000 budget at this timing, whether it's better to go for a used SD1M (the ones from Japan are so cheap!) or a new DP2Q. Thanks. I have been a DP2S user for three years and really love the Foveon color and image quality. I acquired a SD14 and three basic SA lenses (50mm/2.8, 10-20mm, 18-200mm) in April, and had some pleasing shots so far this summer. Now I'm ready for trying out a newer generation. I've been reading all the reviews and...

Hello everyone, I am a proud owner of a Sigma DP1 Merrill camera, and have been very happy with it. It can take some really nice picture, when the light is ideal. I use my full frame cameras and the detail and color of Sigma still impresses me. So much so that I was thinking of getting the SD1 Merrill camera and maybe get a Sigma 24-105mm lens for it so it can be more flexible as sometimes the fixed 28mm of DP1M is not enough. What I wanted to know is if there is any differences between SD1...

I am amazed of the quality I can get out of my recently acquired DP2M and DP3M and am considering springing for one of the SD1 with 17-50mm f:2.8 combos which is so very reasonably priced here in Euroland at the moment instead of adding a DP1M. Unfortunately there does not seem to be anywhere to try them out here in Brussels. Due to shaky hands I have decided not to use the DPxMs handheld but only on a tripod. So I am a bit concerned about my ability to use the SD1 handheld. 1) Has anybody...

I'm wondering, whether I could use this newly introduced RayFlash universal Ringflash adapter on the Sigma DP3M (possibly also DP1/2M, and also an old DP-series-cam), when supposedly using it in combination with the Sigma EF 610 DG Super flash. Would it also likely work on the SD1(M) when the new 18-35mm 1.8-lens is attached, in combination with that same EF 610 DG Super flash? I just haven't any clue whatsoever, which is why I'd happy, if someone here (or wherever really...) could tell me or...

Hi, I am not too sure if this has been covered before here, but I'd like to understand if there is a way to see all the lens information which is stored in the lens database file on the SD1 Merrill. It's clear that all of the recent lenses are supported, but I'd like to see if any of the older AF lenses are listed in this database.

Does it make sense for me to buy a 32 GB 1000x Lexar Pro CF card (145 MB/s write speed and 150 MB/s read speed) for $120 now, rather than a couple of slower $35 cards (16 GB each), for my Sigma SD14, if I plan to buy a Sigma SD1 in six months? I mean the cheaper cards will end up costing half the price, and I wouldn't be risking 32 GB of data in one card. I don't need the speed for my SD14, because it can probably only write at about quarter of the speed the 1000x card is capable of...

I was anticipating a new SD1 Merrill for $1800.  I had been checking several sources for the body and a new 35mm lens, all from the same source.  Shortly after the new year all the sources that were $1800 are now $2300.  Is there some technical reason for the 22% price increase over one day, the new year?  TimOakland, CA510-594-8277

Anyone having auto focus problems with the 17-50mm f2.8 OS lens? Can't get sharp images. Manual focus is a pain w/o live view and not that much better than the auto focus. The DP2M is sharp as a tack with its fixed/matched lens.
