Re: DP2 - built in OVF

The main thing I'd change would be to take out the flash to make space for a built-in optical viewfinder with accurate framing and if necessary shrink the LCD but increase pixel count on the LCD. This way the package stays pocketable even with the OVF. The built in flash is too weak for serious use, especially given the need for strong wide coverage with a 16mm lens, so it's removal is not much of a loss.

I have a DP1 and I love it. For me at this point in time, there is no
equal to it.

Anyhow I'd buy a DP2 (and probably most people) if the following
issues where improved:

  • Foremost!!!! Autofocus!!! Something as fast as an entry level DSLR.

  • Resolution: 10mp Foven, chip size of 35mm film, would yield IQ far

beyond anything in the market right now.

  • Better LCD.

  • Better response time (shutter lag, LCD lag), as fast as entry level

DSLR.

  • JPEG + RAW files.

  • The current 28mm lens is great, but if they could do an F2.8 lens..

Then it would be perfect. And if Sigma could make interchangeable
lens system, then it'd be the holy grail of digital photography for
me.

There are other improvements to be done of course, but with the above
listed features, I can't think of any other camera that would get
close to this "would be" DP2.

PLEASE DON'T ADD ANYTHING ELSE TO THIS POST, JUST SAY YES! IF YOU'D
BUY ONE.

Let's see how many people in this forum would buy this DP2.

Cheers!

Chemel.
