Re: DP2M In Perspective

It isn't possible to consider the DPxM series outside the context of "everything else that is out there".

Basically, to me, the DPxM is a view camera in a tiny package, and compared to other cameras requires quite a bit more care in its use.

I think for the past several years I have been deluding myself, trying to use Sigmas as everyday cameras.  Now I have a good camera for everyday use, easy to carry, that will make good large prints if needed.  This leaves a little niche for a DPxM when I'm looking for the best image quality.

I don't have a DPxM camera yet, but I have owned a DP2 non-M for a few years.  It just can't cut it as an everyday camera but what it does is beyond any everyday camera.  As time goes by I think I'm getting closer to being on the right track.  Sigma fits, sometimes.

If I had to choose just one camera I would go with the everyday camera.  Fortunately I have a wider choice.
