help on DP3

Hi all,

I am thinking about "investing" in a DP3 Merrill now that it can be found at ridiculous prices in the uk.

I do have a mft setup, with a G6 as a body which sports a quite outdated sensor, but has a lot of features and I really do not see a big leap form other similar form factor cameras out there.

Then I saw the pics from the sigma...

I recently did a session and on portraits I see that the G6 body is starting to be a limit for my ideas... I have been thinking of going full-frame, but I cannot justify the investment, not I want a full frame size.

I am used to shoot at base iso typically and I can live with shooting slowly and all the other shortcomings I know these camera have (particularly at this price).

What I cannot find on reviews is actually how much you can do with a raw file slowly converted in 16but tiff and edited in photoshop.

My workflow typically include a big part in photoshop, and I really do not mind messing with raw files to have the right colours, and fix anything fixable...

any help from somebody with a DP merrill using it in photoshop?
