well i finally got the dp2 merrill today and when i opened it i like the look of it ..so armed with my tripod and sd card i went out ....i allso took a nex 7 with a zeiss 35 70mm f3.4 ....most of my shots were iso 100 f8 ....i noticed that when i was using manual focus the ring made a bit of a noise ,is this normal
allso when magnifying with the live view i didnt think the sharpness was that good so i didnt really know if i nailed the shot
my nex has focus peaking which is very very handy ...so most of the day i was keeping my fingers crossed that the images would be as good as i have seen on here and other forums ..in the sun it was hard to focus on the lcd so hoping there is another option ...
i thought battery life wasnt bad ..i like to think what i am taking and as i was taking all the shots i was thinking i hope this is as good as everyone says
so walked home thinking maybe they will be ok but not great
i installed the sigma photo util then converted the files to tiff ..i was on the floor with totall amazement ..the best and sharpest camera lens conmbo i have ever seen ..its that good and suits my needs that i am going to sell all my zeiss lenses and all my canon and nex gear..
i love the way the sensor gets every last drop of detail and it makes me want to photo all sorts of things to see that amazing detail ...my next purchase will be a view finder screen protedtor and maybe some sort of hood ..will have to now get the dp1 merrill and dp3 merrill
