Re: DP2M In Perspective

Hi sandy

I've pondering a dp2m for a while - Mr Blissfly is somewhat persuasive - but I can't comfortably use a viewfinderless camera handheld because i cant see the screen properly without reading glasses. And if i wear glasses i can't see anything else! it's ok doing this with the camera on a tripod - which is how i used my dp1 - but for handheld use i need a good viewfinder. Viewfinders are the reason I sold my GF1 - and my g7 compact has sat in a cupboard for 3 years.

Also the dp1 was easy to focus anyway - set focus to 3 feet and f/8 and no need for AF. But the 2 has a longer lens and needs active focus so it won't suit me as anything other than a landscape camera (for which it is ideal). I would be very happy to use for this if I had the money to gamble but I don't so it'll need a proper viewfinder. I guess eventually sigma will offer a model with an evf but it'll likely be a long wait.
