    Re: Sigma DP3M

    Couple test shots using AML-2 and step-down ring.

    Rose was at f9, std colors, -1 saturation
    Sage at f16, std color.
    Shot using sunlight WB.
    Sage bloom is 1 inch wide.

    There was light breeze so rose should have been sharper.

    Surprisingly no visible vignette.

    Bokeh seems good.

    These are uncropped shots.

    Thanks toledo1960!...I was wondering if it would be worth pursuing the AM2.
    Can you give me an example of the max magnification, with and without the Am2?
    Also is there any vignette at wider apertures.. and if so, when does it creep in?
    Thanks again!

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    Keep posting photos guys, I love it Infact, I love almost all photos on the DP threads, that push us to be always better QUENTIN BARGATE , we wait you here !

    At home composing visuals while rain is falling outside...



    Ho by the way I get attacked by "Loyd Chamber" about my professionalism because I said in my report that colors out of the DP3 Merrill are more accurate than DP2 Merrill.

    I stay in my positions, as I'm not a professional reviewer but a Professional photographer who have an artist and painter eye. When there is a difference I see it and I'm not the only possessor of DP3m to have noticed a change (beneficial).

    But, as I say, I am not a reviewer (yet) and I don't give into forum ego/polemics.

    With all due respect to this reviewer.

    Sorry for late reply ... indisposed.

    I would say max mag is around 30% more. Vignette at 2.8 noticeable, clears up fairly well by f4 if not completely gone. This is based on some test shots of ruler (for mag) and sheet of white paper focused at infinity.... and a pair of old tired eyes.

    I have trouble with even lighting in my house and these tests should not be considered exacting results. I would prefer to not post these as this can lead to equipment bashing fodder, if you know what I mean.

    I think one needs to consider the aml-2 as just another tool in the chest to help out when needed.
    Hope this helps.

    I agree......but your country is spectacular and ever changing too. I spent 10 days last summer in the area around Torrey, Escalante Staircase, Kodachrome Basin and could have spent months there.

    Quentin,

    the 50mm has been the accepted standard lens on 35mm for many years and has been the most used by Cartier Bresson and other Magnum afficionados for their street work.

    It is a great focal length for general work and I am sure will continue to be so for many years to come.

    Yes, but here we have a 50mm with the FOV of a 75mm on 35mm. This is more a sjort portrait lens.

    Thanks. Entirely different subject matter but I agree it has a lot offer.

    I've spent years here and am still just scratching the surface, so to speak.

    I'm an avid hiker as well so I get to lot's of remote places which is a real bonus.

    +1 Although a large portion of these photos can be accredited to the photographer and the subject matter, they show what a great potential this camera has. Unfortunately, I have other urgent priorities right now. I sit on my hands.

    I know, I know, enough of the same and enough shallow dof. But this is the most impressive sensor lens combo I ever had the pleasure to use. Turning even mundane subjects into interesting ones. All iso 200, AWB, f4, color accuracy is quite impressive.

    Thank you and all others for the nice feedback. But I believe these boxy, black humble DP Merrills simply get the best out of the photographer. I`m seriously considering of selling the M9 and lenses.

    This is not a shame to consider that. I know that many purists can't understand but when you love IQ, when you love good glass, the DPs come in very high positions compared to the Ms, even if no telemeter and interchangeable lens ...

    How much leicaÔsts use their M only with a 50 Summilux or a 75 ?? How many ??

    A lot.

    The only thing who is missing is very luminous glass on a 24x36 sensor. But My wild guess is that will be possible with foveon, one day, in the future

    Weird, isn't it? I keep assuming I must be mad to reject the thought of building a professional kit around a Nikon D800 or Canon 5DMkIII but I just can't see what advantage they have over the DPxM cameras.

    Of course, the camera has to suit your style. It can't be used for sports or action and it really benefits from being used on a tripod.

    I can live with that!

    Nothing mad about it at all.

    Why carry around all that heavy gear when you can get the same or better results w. such a lightweight setup.

    All you have to accept are the limitations, i.e. no sports, action, or wildlife
    photography.

    For Landscapes, other than low-light, it's a dream.

    Also, there is a beauty to having a prime lens/sensor dedicated camera. I would have nice primes for a dSLR and shoot a zoom lens instead to avoid switching lenses. Now I can reach into a bag and pull out a wide, normal or short tele......so much easier....all for the price of a 5D3 body.

    I bumped into a pro yesterday. He was carrying a heavy medium format setup.

    I asked if he knew about the Merrills. He didn't seem all that aware so I explained a little about them to him. Unfortunately for him he seemed committed to carrying around all the heavy stuff.

    Hope he knows a good chiropractor and has a good banker.

    Advantage of the D800 is versatility. Actually the D800E and Merrills work well together.

    It's the medium format kit I'm dumping

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    The Cathedral (Dom) at Worms, Rhein (Germany)
    This roman church is more than 900 years old, in the 17th century a baroque altar (by Balthasar Neumann) was added.
    Took the DP3M and a very small table tripod with head (by Leica), oc no tripods allowed. The cam did very well with long exposures. It was very dark there exposures where between 0.5 to 5 s.

    Part 1, the altar ( 2d pic slightly cropped and rectified in PS CS6):


    @100%


    The detail at 100% on screen, well......
    A long time ago, when the Canon 5DMKII was new, i took these images with the Canon - these files don't play in the same league with the Merrill.

    Worms Cathedral
    Part 2:

    A relief from the inside (very dark). Unfortunately the top is missing, but had to make some compromise with no tripods allowed, had to hide between the church benches.

    Shows what the DP3M can do. I would crop off the tree on the right :-)
