Re: Leica x1, talk me out of it (keep my DP2)?

So, are there fellow Sigma shooters that can help and justify my desire, or talk me out of this and prove that my DP2 can do as good? (my dp1 really falls short in higher iso, i use that mainly for landscapes)

If you job doesn't require you to follow some quality guidelines, there is absolutely no need swapping DP2 (I am talking about higher ISO).

Mind this: http://www.rytterfalk.com/2008/02/13/bw-dp1-experiment-iso3200-6400/

X1 is a nice camera, as it works great, Leica style, but you will be disappointed with range and lack of 3Dness.

Much better investment would be to buy yourself a nice trip to somewhere, and take a lot of pics with what you have.

Good luck.
