Since Sigma has already a macro-lens (AML-2) for shooting from as near as 20 cm there is no real need for a dedicated macro like the DP-3M.
I nurtured the hope to get some converters (the screw-in type) to get more range out of the existing Merrills. (Olympus and Panasonic went this way).
For portrait-shooters there is no need for that ultimate corner to corner sharpness of a new body - so a simple converter would have been cheaper and better...An ultra-wide-angle Merrill on the other hand has more interest for most people. Wider than the DP-1M would mean easier panos and better city-scapes.

Absolutely disappointing!
No hot shoe - still this ridiculous accessory port, enforcing the exclusive use of external viewfinder or microphone/flash, but not of both or all 3 simultaneously (dedicated microphone and flash sockets missing) - video over-heating issue not tackled - no dials/buttons for custom functions
Wi-fi speed is not specified - suspect it to be as slow as the eye-fi cards.
I'm very keen to see a real firmware on this...

On article Subway - Photographs by Bruce Davidson (6 comments in total)

A book review about a photographer without pix is somewhat frustrating. Other aspects missing: size (dimensions) of the book, number of pages, quality of reproduction and print and paper - some remarks in this regards would have been welcome, instead of re-introducing such a wellknown name as Bruce Davidson.
