Sigma DP2 review

When you buy this niche camera, you should know that its not everybody's cup of
tea. On the positive side its got a DSLR crop sensor (about 12x normal compacts)
stuffed into a compact body, so much more portable than lugging your DSLR with a
fixed focal length.
So right off the bat you're talking better quality pictures and less noise than any P&S
on the market today. The f/2.8 lens is a real cracker. Faster than many P&S and
you're actually going to get a reasonably good bokeh at f/2.8, much better than the
LX3 at f/2.

Problems:

No problems, but the shutter button doesn't have much feel to it. You'll know what I
mean when you take a picture. Of course you need to convert RAW files using
Sigma's software to jpeg or tiff and can then further process in the software of your
choice.

Its no speed demon on RAW so don't expect machine gun performance.
