the AFE version of DP1

I got these in 2017 together with the DP2x. I missed the days when i was using the sigma DP2 and its quirks and bought these 2 to enact the dedication needed to make those cam work.

But unfortunately something have changed in the X series, not for the better though. The highlights are easily blown and only after much rants in the sigma forum and some helpful information by the users and google, i realized that the problem is the AFE that Sigma added to this series.

My suggestion is to go for DP1S/DP2S if you want the foveon signature images, quirks and good highlight recovery.
