It is true that the Merrill (out of the box) gives more texture and more visible detail in e.g. far away parts of a landscape. This gives it an extra punch. It looks sharp and exciting.

I have a DP2 and a DP3m. In each case I bought when the price dropped to less than half + included extras.

With any camera I think colour is problematic. I never learnt to use Photoshop. I am ok with SPP and always use only full res RAW.

When I have the raw in SPP and try to operate the controls there is always some aspect or part of the image that goes "overboard" when operating any of the parameters. With Merrill/SPP monochrome I feel more relaxed. Have a look at https://www.flickr.com/photos/soundoptics/ if you wish.

On flickr I have followed "Luminous * West" https://www.flickr.com/photos/65723210@N00/ posting Sigma DP photos almost exclusively. I think his results are exactly of the type Roland talks about. I like them but with his new DP2q the results are even better and still somehow with the same distinctive touch.
