    But at f2.8, wouldn't you rather get the Oly m4/3 next year and the same focal length at f1.7 (with Panny lens)? You get 1.5 stops on lens and then presumably at least another stop or two in ISO performance assuming Panny's & Sigma's sensors get better by the same amount.

    Terry, excellent point.
    However, the Sigma might just be available far sooner however.
    And that would soo rock

    The DP1 has noticeably more dynamic range than the E-420. In black and white, the DP1 also offers significantly more usable high ISO range than the E-420, with the reverse true for color. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the DP2 proves to be the better black and white camera, at least from an sensor image quality standpoint. Then there's the lens characteristics to consider, which aside from speed are unknown for both lenses.

    More info I think its true

    "Again, it's secret, but since the device is already before the bell stand Sigma, it offers before the first photo of the next Sigma S2." (yikes google translation lol)

    Announced

    http://www.dpreview.com/news/0809/08092305sigma_dp2.asp


    I read on another sites comments,that Sigma once had 2 film camera,the first had a zoom of 28-50 the second 50-100...
    Their sure Sigma's plan is to cover their old film cameras zoom,but with 3 seperate digital cameras.

    They fully expects a Sigma Dp3 to be released later at around 105mm...

    It will be interesting to see how this pans out between the Oly and Dp1 & 2..

    At first glance the Oly seems more convenient,carrying one body and a few lens, over carrying 2 or 3 cameras...

    Early days but nothing from Ricoh yet,i have a certain amount of brand loyalty to them..

    Actually I am more stoked about the DP2 than I am about the Panny G1 or even the yet to be finalized Olympus M4/3.
    If the operational speed had been increased, even with same LCD it will rock

    noooooooo, the LCD on the DP1 truly truly sucks. and if they haven't changed the way it operates... the DP1 is my least used camera because i just hate shooting with it. i seriously have to force myself to use it. granted, f/2.8 would have made it better, but still...

    then i see the pictures i've taken and wonder why i don't use it more often

    As a 40mm-e afficionado, this is just great. First the 20/1.7 for the Panasonic G1. Now this 41mm-e model from Sigma. I suspect Olympus will (unfortunately) offer a 25mm prime as their m4/3 "normal" lens but, like a couple of members, I'm waiting to see what Ricoh announces.

    Cam, I could have written exactly the same message... I get guilty pangs that I'm not using my DP1 more often, but I'm just having so much more fun shooting with my E-420.

    From this Saturday - Open House London Safari Event.

    E-420 + PL 14-150 OIS (EFL 28-300)... so lightweight and compact, carried on a BlackRapid R-Strap.







    I just love that Oly colour!

    Kind Regards

    Brian

    This is such good news,maybe the lcd is better,maybe not,really not important to me.If its a little faster thats got to be good.I would have liked a bit of sealing as I take a lot of photos by the sea(is it that hard or expensive to do?)but Ill be buying one anyway, all the best,Neil.

    Well I think this is TRES TRES Cooool
    Even though I did sell both my GRD2 and my DP1....
    I missed the DP1 most
    yet my BEST pictures were with the GRD2 /a FANTASTIC camera really
    Figure That
    there is something Special about the DP1 /now 2 possibly

    For me its was too easy on the GRD1& 2 ...
    You could be Blind and take a great shot

    The DP1 you need to think more & Outsmart dome of its Flaws
    Maybe the DP2 will have some of those kinks ironed out

    Ohhh lala!!
    best-H

    Yeah, the one from the GRD II would be just right.

    I wonder if anyone would be capable of fitting one to a DP1? Would be an interesting experiment.

    Some more info coming through...


    http://www.photographyblog.com/index...nts/sigma_dp2/

    Sigma UK’s Paul Reynolds demoed the camera to us at Photokina

    "Due for release in February/March 2009!"

    "Although the new TRUE II will “definitely speed up the general operation of the camera”, according to Reynolds, the auto-focus speed will only be slightly improved, because of the inherent problem with physically moving such a large lens."

    I read that and thought that is was crazy, the LX3 lens certainly doesn't look any smaller, nor is the TZ5, nor is .......
