    Picked mine up yesterday. The weather is lousy here. 2 jpeg B&W shots at iso 1600 as I drove home. Nr 3-5 macro mode, f14, iso 100. Nr 4 is a crop from Nr 3.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    What? No circular aperture for DP3M? I'm very surprised.
    DP2M with 9 diaphragm blades produces a much better bokeh results.
    Thanks for sharing this example, toledo1960

    Bokeh is a subjective and personal thing. The DP3m do have 7 blades, as my Nikkor 85 f1.8 afs-g and guess what ?? If you felt in such marketing ploys ... you fall out of art and photography in general.

    I enjoin you to be more moderated in your statements and to experiment before stating such BS, sorry And I moderate my words heavily.

    I do not understand why you come here, as you did on LuLa, to bash this product.

    DP2m and the DP1m are different tools for different works. If you are happy with your A850, stay with it and do not come here to bash something you do not have or tested or understood. We are not on DPreview, we are between epicureans who enjoy fine products and photoart. Going in such polemic is for the nolife no wife geeks.

    Hope you understand, without offence.

    The workshop (a part).

    Nice dbogdan. The realism/immediacy that the Merrill's can capture coupled with artistic flair provides endless possibilities. Can't wait to get out and really shoot with it.

    Just to clarify I was not posting it as a critique. As Hulyss stated, let's not turn this place into dpreview ... That gets tiresome real quick.

    Like anything else. And I simply expressed my opinion.
    I'm not bashing DP3M. I'm grateful to toledo1960 for showing the bokeh I haven't seen in official samples or anywhere else.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    Wonderful shots everyone. I'm jealous. Me, I am home waiting for a delivery guy and working on a technique I want to use in landscape shots.

    I shot 29 frame pano to play up on the foveon effect using the Brenizer technique. I am new to panos so be kind

    I also included shooting sequence to help new people like me.

    Results seem to be subtle 3-d with f2.8 as opposed to f1.2-1.4 usually used for this. I prefer subtle for landscape.

    Sorry for watermark .. i'm still deciding if I will get ptgui.

    Also, need to fix that stitching error. I fixed some of the control points, but, no go.

    I really should have used a multi-row pano setup, but, only have single-row.

    Guess what delivery guy I am waiting for?


    Edit:
    Also, forgot to mention - if you shoot manual exposure, be aware that there is a safety shift to higher aperture if you exceed 1/2000 sec shutter. The camera will stop-down the aperture and you may not notice. I didn't and ended up shooting my first batch at f5.6! It was comical when I started reviewing the images and wondering why my depth of field was so off. Habits die hard ... i am so used to 1/8000 shutters and blinking exposure settings when hitting limits.

    Oh Carl.....you know me SO well.....another OpTech neoprene pouch, another grip from Richard and another Lance strap (of a different color). I literally can throw all three into my messenger bag and know which one is which to grab.

    I also ordered a $5 metal tele-lens hood with cap from China. Should work out OK.

    The DP3M is quite the different beast from its siblings. The colors are truer. I had to upgrade to SPP 5.5 in order to process the RAW files. They seem to need so little correction. In fact the last five shots I posted from the botanical gardens needed no further correction in LR.

    That has been my experience as well. If exposure is OK, essentially no PP needed after export from SPP 5.5.

    Thank you, yes the blossom color is quite delicate and easy to blow out next to the dark shades in the leaves.

    Yes, colors do seem to render differently in the DP3M images and more accurate as well.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    So what's the verdict ?

    Worse, equal to, or better than the DP2 ?

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    No final verdict now.

    I tend to say equal to the 2M, but have to use it more.

    Differences i noted so far:

    Color rendition is (little?) different
    I overexpose my 2 by 0.7 EV there is no need to do that on the 3 (A mode)
    Auto WB is more on the warmer side with the 3, specially indoors

    Whats equal:

    There CAN be banding in the shadows
    There CAN be the "infamous" magenta/green blotches in shadows (mostly at high ISO i.e. 800+ .... i handle both problems in post - if any)
    The lens is superb!!

    I love both M's. The 30 and 50 mm are very versatile and fit both very good in my kind of photography.

    I like the AF limiter which allows me to get into a macro mode with just a few button pushes. Haven't set up the custom limits yet.

    This bokeh is amazing. It is easily as good as any top end Leica M lens I have ever owned, imho.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    Two shots taken this afternoon at Taughannock gorge on the west shore of Cayuga Lake. The icicles hanging off the gorge walls in the upper falls amphitheater (1st shot) remind me of organ pipes in a cathedral. For scale reference, look at full size image in lower right corner - two people standing on the lower viewing platform below the falls. I had to use + exp comp, an ND filter, ISO 100, and f/16 to put enough drag on the shutter for the lower falls shots (2 shot stitch) to soften the water flow.

    One more from yesterday's shoot at Taughannock gorge. Just some gnarly old hemlocks trying to make a living on top of the bedrock. A stitch from two DP3M images.
