Re: Sigma dp3m short impressions

Yes of course, anyone will use it the way they prefer it, with VF or not. For my use this focal is not that long, after all, to shoot without VF. One of my most used portrait lens on my Nikons is a
Nikkor AF 180mm f/2.8 ED IF that I use hand-held around 1/100 so this tiny 75 equivalent doesn't frighten me. It really depend how steady you are.

For the bokeh, well... this is an f2.8 APS-C bokeh. We can't expect more out of this combo, even though the bokeh, as well as the DP2m, is far more pleasing at f3.2 than f2.8. I do not know why, maybe a blade configuration at 2.8 ... I dunno. It react like the exceptional Pentax smc 43mm F1.9 Limited, the character of the lens, bokeh/contrast/saturation is very similar, a little less warm but similar. But the DP3m lens is far more sharper at all aperture.
