A couple of years ago, I started a thread on the then new Sigma DP2 Merrill camera. I was very impressed by the image quality.
Today, I took delivery of its successor, the DP2 Quattro, and, as with the DP2M, I decided to take a few casual shots over lunch to form a first view of the image quality, although this time, using less poat processing than with the Merrill shots.
The following are links (shrunk to fit this forum) to full size jpeg conversions from raw (right click and magnify to see the originals), using Sigma Photo Pro 6.03.
All are -1 sharpening, 1 point reduced NR, ISO 100, except for the bottle shot, which was IS0 200.
My (possibly controversial) very preliminary conclusions so far are that this camera is a winner.
The colors look good, the Merrill mono shadow issue is largely gone, but the sharpness and fine details remain.
given the reservations expressed elsewhere, I am pleasantly surprised.
More thoughts to follow.
