Hello, I will be visiting Athens and the Greek islands on vacation soon. So far, on all my vacations I have used a camera with a zoom lens. Do you think a fixed lens camera like a DP0 or a DP1 would be suitable as an only camera?


I've used various Sigma DP cameras for travel since the DP2 in 2009 followed by a DP1s, DP2 Merrill, DP3 Merrill and since 2014 a dp2 Quattro. Most of the time as the only (dedicated) camera, sometimes with an RX100, but the Sony tends to stay at home now that smartphones have improved in both low light and video quality - the weak areas of Sigma.

I have the Sigma EF-630 flash, quite useful indoors but don't know how well it would work with a 21mm equivalent lens.

Interesting that for travel you prefer to carry the DP2 which has a 50mm FOV.

He does not carry a DP2 - which is a different model with 41mm equivalent focal length.

He carries a dp2 Quattro - which is 30mm actual focal length, equivalent to 45mm.

Sigma names their cameras variously using upper or lower case and there are actually four different models starting with caps "DP2 ..." so your comment above is confused.

Nobody here except me cares that much about naming Sigma models - it gives us something to do trying to work out which is meant, by it's context, but youcommitted the cardinal sin of leaving out "Q" or "q" whichever.

Pardon my cynicism ...
