Many months ago I had the Sigma Dp1 for a few days, but in the end I did not keep it. It was too slow. However, I've been thinking about it again for its compactness and IQ, and I reviewed the Dp1 RAW files last night and I was impressed.
This time around I don't think the slowness will bother me. My photography has slowed down for several reasons. I've been shooting film and I don't want to waste it, so I'm much more cautious about what I shoot, and with two young kids and a busy work life my free time is very limited, and I don't have hours and hours to sort through and process thousands of digital images. So, the effect is that my digital capture has slowed down to the pace of film. I always have a serious compact with me, usually a GRD2 and VF in the case that I do find an interesting picture in the landscape.
I have a GRD2 and GX100, but though good as they are they have limitations. Color representation and richness is better on the Dp1 and the Dp1 creates more stunning B&W images because of the dynamic range. And they are clean, less noisy images.
But will I just be frustrated again??? Am I fooling myself?
