    Just checked the price at Yodobashi. It will be 69,800 yen. I'll be stopping at Yodobashi tonight on the way home to reserve mine. It's gonna be a long 3 weeks!

    It's done. I stopped at Yodobashi and reserved a DP2. The guy in the store told me I was the first one to reserve the camera. I bet I won't be the last. I already have a 40mm Voigtlander viewfinder for it, and I'm thinking about getting another Artisan&Artist case for it too. I don't even have the camera yet and I'm already buying accessories for it! Is that bad?

    No, I think not. I share your enthusiasm, being in that same sweet situation many, many times. I do hope that DP2 will do much better justice to the promising Foveon sensor. I tried hard to make SD14 or DP1 one of my main cameras, but failed miserably.
    Do let those anticipative emotions keep coming.
    Kind regards,

    Bill, I hope you post some shots with it right away. Do me a favor, will you? Please post some taken in available light at high iso's. I can't wait, either, until you get yours.

    OK, available light at high ISO. That'll be high on my list.

    Thanks for the kind words. I'm extremely happy with the DP1, so I have high hopes for the DP2. The 28mm lens on the DP1 is a tad wide for me, so I'm looking forward to a slight longer lens, and the wider aperture should be a bonus too.

    Hi Bill.
    Sounds good with your DP2.
    When you're testing I'm very interested in the speed of the mrk. II;-)
    I knew the DP1 - so I'll be happy if you will tell us about the speed compared to DP1.

    Thanks.
