Now that I've had the DP2M for a little while, and have been shooting with it extensively, I thought I would share some thoughts and observations on the camera.
A lot of things we already know, for example, the battery life is poor, the AF is slow etc. Really no need to rehash what has already been written countless times. I will add thought that the build of the camera is actually very good.

Please look above "under the lines".................
I understand your point, but this sharpness across the frame at wide aperture, also at distant objects, this ....clarity.... is amazing, just amazing, and fine colors (not always, but most of the time perfect) is something to go for.
You are so right - this sensor demands good light, at least handheld, or a tripod, but you only need a light and small one.
You are also right: The Sigma Pro Photo program is not easy to understand in the beginning, so I only changed the WB and saved for another program, but I am beginning to find out more about it, and it can do more, than this, in a fine way, I think, and I am willing to spend the time to find out.
It is not a camera for everyone, we can say, and I would never have it as the only one, because it is not good for fast moving things, and the iso-performance is horribly, but for landscapes in good light or tripod, and for cityscapes (and perhaps also for portraits? if you later blur the skin) - and you get it in a so small pacet, so I love it..
Thank you for your fine review
