I have the DP2 Merrill on loan; the images are very nice, truly amazing - better than the other cameras I have at hand; Sony Rx-100, Samsung Ex1 and Canon EOS 20D. I think performance is ok, but RAW writing is slow. But... Battery life time is weak... I have a very early production model; might be better now. Could anybody give us some numbers on battery life time?

If you're experiencing problems with speed, you cannot possibly have been using the camera. Kendall, aka George Preddy, has said so.

I have had no problem with the speed. The DP1 is far worse as one cannot take a photo while writing. With the Dp2M one can change settings and take new photos while the old is written to the card.

But Jaelkay, which other camera writes 45 to 60Mb faster to SD card ?

Right, you can take more photos with the DP2Merrill while it's writing... unlike the DP1. I'm getting many files around or over 60MB.

But Jaelkay claims to have the DP2Merrill in a post above, perhaps he hasn't discovered that you can shoot 'til the buffer fills...

NSS???? And when the buffer is full? What then, Sherlock? Does one have to wait for a dreadfully long time or not? Huh?
