I bought this when they dropped the price in Europe and am delighted after two days.

My first camera is an OMD EM1 and this is much lighter. My third camera is an E30 - the only one big enough to hold the 50-200 FT lens.

The DP1M produces excellent pictures with lots of detail and micro-contrast. As long as the light is good enough to shoot at ISO100 handheld or you use a tripod, it works fine. The menus are very easy to use and the customisation is well thought through.

After all the reviews about slow speeds and the crashy software for RAW processing, I was prepared for a hard time. Frankly it wasn't that bad. If I want zoom, high ISO, IS etc then it's the EM1. For landscapes and architecture then you can carry this camera all day in a small bag.

For what it does well, it's superb. For everything else it's useless. You can see from the blogs that people who have it as a second camera love it as a tool for a job.

You probably already know about this camera and the Foveon sensor. Personally, I am happy to put up with the shortcomings which are the ISO and the battery life and the optional post processing from RAW in exchange for the quality of the lenses (yes) and the level of details. Some reviewers concluded that you can only shoot landscapes but quite frankly you can do everything with it, as long as you *adapt* to its /ISO limitations. Of all the digital cameras I have owned, this little black box is probably the best, I wish it had a fancy badge and and a better look. That it all there is to say but I could write pages about it ;-)

I'm a massive fan of the original DP cameras. The Sigma DP1x is the best camera I've owned. From the moment I first used it I realised that I had found a camera that was good enough to replace my old Leica M7 film camera. What I was looking for was a digital camera that would look and feel like an old rangefinder and be very simple to use. No endless menus to scroll through and settings to distract. Just select shutter speed, aperture, focus and shoot.

The images were breathtaking; to me they looked just like old film images, more natural than the other digital cameras I've used. Despite the reviews I'd read, the camera was used successfully for portraits, landscapes, street photography and reportage. I also got some great close-ups with the optional AML-01 lens. People who dismissed these cameras are those that the Sigma was never intended for anyway. Lovers of image quality, minimalism and basic function in design raved about them.

The key to these cameras was the revolutionary and unconventional Foven image sensor (far more 'real' looking images than conventional Bayer cameras) and the basic design concept that makes using the camera an uncluttered pleasure.

The downside is Sigma. They simply can't get their act together to make a consistently reliable camera. The original DP1's and DP2's are plagued by a fault with the lens jamming. I believe Sigma refuse to repair this despite the fact that it is their product that is not fit for purpose.

So the new DP1 Merrill. Better build quality? Yes, it seems like a very solid camera. The simplicity of use remains. Image quality is even better! It's easily as good if not better than medium format film.

But. . . . . .

I don't like it at all. To start with, it's an ugly brute......

I would say I've owned (for a short time) practically every digital camera ever made other than the very expensive ones, but have been disappointed with them all. I feel its still work in progress with digitals, same old same old, just more megapixels but no better quality.
I tried the original DP1 which had the famous broken ribbon cable in the lens which was replaced by me and what a job that was!! Bad design, to short a cable having to move so far every time the camera is switched on. But Sigma at the time supplied the parts with no hassle at all.
But the images it took were amazing!! Shame they were only 4 megapixels though.
Then came the DP1 Merrill, I bought this for a song (just over £100.00) and finally I feel digital cameras may have progressed at last to something resembling film.
No need for Raw, I have had some good results with jpeg, the controls are so easy to use, sensibly placed, plenty of room on the right hand side to actually hold the camera with out pressing buttons by mistake, well made and I hope as the lens doesn't move much no ribbons to replace!!
So far I can't recommend it enough, it suits me fine.
Phil

First, with this camera, forget about jpg.
to make sense, one must use its RAW x3f mode...

this camera is a bigger sensor, APS c size...so pls NOTE that first.

camera, and lens cap, made in Japan...
batts, and batt charger, hecho en china...

I guess people LIE thru their teeth.
There is NOTHING SHARP abt this camera, even in its raw x3f mode...
in its own software, as raw or 16 bit tiff.

the usd 450 Ricoh gxr a16 in JPG mode is sharper... than
this so called merrill dp1...duhhh

so many reviews...so many lies ?
or people cant COMPARE ? or lost sight of what is sharp ?

i checked a hundred fotos, ON 24 INCH SCREEN full mag,
as well as BIG prints.... fuji film paper... fuji frontier system...
it is NOT sharp...only average sharp...

BUT THE COLORS. THE TONES. THE SUBTLE VARIATIONS.
THIS CAMERA WILL BLOW YOUR MIND IN THAT.
Foveon triple color sensors are Designed Right,
NOT like the Rest of the world's Black n White sensors with colors added on later...

this camera will NOT honestly be known for true sharpness....
you will have to sharpen in its sigma software once,
and then again...and maybe yet again... if you like Leica TACK sharpness...
in order to BEGIN TO GET CLOSE to those countless pix you see on
sigma s site, or other reviewers fotos...

BUT the subtle variations of tones, colors, etc...will remind you of
SLIDE FILM all over again...
this camera will force you to GO OUTSIDE ( stick to iso 100 and take
a light tripod ) on rainy days or sunny days...
and the results will make you go oooooh and aaaaaah
especially if you get to PRINT out big fotos.

sharpness is 2.5
COLOR is 4.
