Edwin, this is a very pleasing black and white image. I was just reading a review (Reid Reviews) comparing the BW images from several cameras, including the Leica M Monochrome and the Sigma DP2M, and his conclusion was the DPM2 showed the highest resolution of those cameras tested, and the DP2M BW images were his favorite of the group.

Thank you!

It's a real pleasure shooting with the DP2m, and it's performance from my two outings into the dunes has not been disappointing in any way. It's a bit difficult to discern proper composition and exposure when using a red filter in the dunes... the subtle tonal changes make it very difficult to see much in the image. I suppose the external viewfinder is an item I should consider buying, and working with a spot meter isn't going to be much of a hassle.

Hopefully it won't be too long until I can print and frame some of these.

Here are a few more images.

... and a happy snap from the top of the dunes, overlooking the desert.

There are some amazing photos being posted.

I have waded through this marsh for years and always stop to take a photo of this dead tree. Never liked any of the shots. First time out in the marsh with the merrill and got a shot I like.

Hi everyone, I'm new here. Been using DP2M since end of last year. I have a quick question ... sorry if it's been covered before.

What do you use for dealing with / removing noise and banding artifacts in low-contrast regions? I've been getting into portrait studio shots with strobes, shooting against grey and black backdrops, and I'm getting some nasty blotches and bad banding in the falloff of the lighting on the backdrop with the DP2 merrill. Notably worse (in this respect) than with my Canon 600D. Any software tips for getting rid of these would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I have been taking TIFFs out of SPP and using Photo Ninja for finishing touches....including NR. Seems to work pretty well.

Thanks for the tip, I'll check it out. Although noise is a problem with DP2M, its more the banding / blotchiness I'm worried about. Hopefully Photo Ninja will help!

Thanks again!

Well, I pretty much shoot landscapes at ISO 100. Early on I noticed the magenta/green blotchiness....but I may have gotten immune to seeing it. If I expose carefully I don't see much in terms of banding, etc.
