| p.1 #13 · Best Portable Landscape Camera? |
My hands down choice for a true landscape camera are the Sigma DP Merrills.
The per pixel sharpness is unreal, as is the lens, DP2m in particular, just tack sharp edge to edge, no distortion or anything. One of the best lenses I've owned and paired perfectly to a very unique sensor.
Rivals anything up to my Nikon D800e in terms of resolution, and all from a compact little $800 camera.
Granted the AF is poor, the high ISO is awful, as is the battery life, but if you have good light, or a little tripod, and can shoot at base ISO, your not going to get better image quality with anything short of a medium format back or a D800e
At the prices they are going for these days they are just a steal as far as a great landscape camera goes, and that basically is the only thing they are good at, but oh so good at it!
Just download a few full size files from one and see for yourself, every last blade of grass, leaf etc all rendered perfectly. Things are unreal
