    Sigma DP1M - what's the verdict?

    Hi all,

    So I have been using the DP2M for a little while now, and like it a good deal.
    So how have those of you who also bought the DP1M and using it along with the DP2M been finding it, is it worth having the extra camera and focal length?

    Any experiences welcome.

    Thanks,
    Po

    Well, my original plan was to shoot with just the DP1M and DP2M, but I started feeling a little constrained by the two focal lengths. I already had several RF lenses of varying focal lengths so I sold the DP1M (and most of my other camera gear), but kept the DP2M an bought a Leica M-E to use with my collection of RF lenses. So now the DP2M is my mini view camera landscape camera and the Leica does everything else. I think I'm happy, so far.

    I used both extensively on a recent trip, 70/30 in the DP2M favour.

    Thanks for sharing Carl.

    Quentin: with this trend, do you feel the DP1M worth the weight?
    Or not the obvious companion one would expect?

    Do you use 28mm frequently?
