After having enjoyed my DP2S, I craved for more resolution but had had a bad experience with DP2 Merrill, so I am put off purchasing anything newer. My issues mainly evolved around two topics - 1. SPP quirks with colorspace settings and color transforms. 2. Seeming lack of IR filtering on DP2 Merill. Thus the question - do you notice the same? Is DP2M missing an IR filter? I mean all people shot in shadow light show incredible and unwanted skin [sub-]structure details (pores, veins, skin...
I have an original DP1 and DP2. Their serial numbers are 10039xx and 10072xx respectively. Are Sigma serial numbers sequential for each camera model? If that is so, does this mean my DP1 was number 39xx off the DP1 assembly line? The low number make sense, as I bought my DP1 pretty early on, and it was one of the first batch that came to Australia. --Archiver - Loving Every Image Captured Alwayshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/archiver/
I am new to the Foveon sensor and I have acquire DP0, DP2 and recently SD Quattro... The new SFD function sound very nice but so far I don't see much difference in Image quality. I wonder what does this SFD means and what does those 7 shots do? Increase details in pixel or dynamic range or? Would appreciate your help... --Kim

Hi all, after comparing the DP Quattro using the Image comparison tool i was blown away seeing how much the DP is ahead of Nikons D800, Fujis X100T and even Leicas Q regarding Resolution and Details in Low ISO´s. I also know of the limitations the DP does have but am willing to bite the bullet. Now it´s concerning the lens selection. Is the DP2 a good compromise as middle of the pack in focal length ? I somehow tend not to go to the extremes of focal length as i want to use the cam...
In prints to 11x14 - what differences will I see from the DP2 compared to the DP2 Merrill? Don't own either. Am considering buying one after reading so much about the quality. Can live with slow and clumsy as most use would be on tripod - like my 5x7 gear. Just looking at actual image quality. Will I see much difference between these two at this print size?
