Sigma DP sunstars
I admit it, I love sunstars, sharp ones that is. It really looks great on night shots to get those sharp star shapes on the lights, and it's something I've always though the original DP1 did wonderfully with it's 6 bladed aperture.
I did a small test today to see how my other DP cameras did in comparison and the 7 bladed aperture in the DP3 Merrill really does well! Even from f4 which surprised me a lot.
The 9 bladed apertures of the DP2M and the dp2Q are alright, but nowhere near as good as the DP3M in my eyes.
The reason the stars are doubled is that my phone seems to have two "flash" diodes and I couldn't turn on just one.
Can't wait to go out and try some night shots with the DP3M and a tripod.
