    That picture of the man in the blue shorts is priceless!

    They are all very impressive though.

    Hi Wayne,

    Happy new year to you!

    It is nice to see you adventures with this camera. What is your opinion regarding the handling of the camera? The DP2 with a 40mm full frame field of view sounds like an interesting camera.

    thanks, will, he was fun to watch. really worked up a sweat!

    hi ed,
    best of the new year to you too.
    the dp1 both satisfying and frustrating. the files as good as they get but post-processing is a must. luckily, a few simple tweaks will do the job. everything is slow, however get the voightlander viewfinder (brighter and metal) rather than the sigma, shoot in manual focus, which is very easy, and treat it like a film leica. great size and photojournalism camera.
    more negs: writes raw to the card slowly and the 4.0 lens requires a lot of wall-leaning as i did in the museum pics: www.pbase.com/wwp/museum
    i've learned to like the 28. that said, the dp2 will probably be a lot more useful in many situations with the 41mm and 2.8 lens.
    you will be complimented by others interested in cameras. unique.
    best,
    wayne
