Rare as hen's teeth.  Perfect for studio use.

Why wouldn't this just work for DP3M, too? Somewhat strange to limit the offer for 1M and 2M.

I have no idea, never owned one.

B&H does not mention the DP3M:

Sigma says:

"Power

Li-ion Battery BP-41, Battery Charger BC-41, AC Adapter SAC-5 (with DC Connector CN-11) (Optional)"

Can't comment - I am not the Seller.

I owned a SAC-5 when I owned a DP3M. Worked just fine. All three DPM cameras have the exact same power specs/requirements.

Any hoot, the SAC-5 is nice to have and very rare to find. Out of the DPM, the DP3M matches the best among the three for studio applications due to the focal length.

Because it's very rare, I thought about preparing a dead battery by connecting it to an USB power bank – but I'm afraid of damaging the DP2M by the 5V voltage instead of the battery 3.6V

Two silicon diodes in series between the 5V and the camera + terminal would be about right ... google silicon diode forward voltage drop ...
