I just think about external battery to DP2...
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/894790-REG/Sigma_eya034_SAC_5_AC_Adapter.html

Did anyone check if it can be powered by an external battery?
Hyper Juice or Quantum - it would be perfect



Yes you can power the DP-2 with an external battery. I've got the SAC-5 powered from an Anker 10000 mah battery. You will probably need a cable of some sort between the battery and the camera. The Anker features USB-based output, hence the need for a USB-to-5v power connector cable. Search LL for details.

The DP3 will be announced soon (if stars align correctly). The DP3 will be geared with a 50mm f2.8 macro lens, equivalent to a 75 mm f2.8, special portrait and bokeh generator. Yummy !!

DP3M - 50mm 2.8?
 
I'd rather prefer a tilt screen and an IR shutter release (both useful for tripod work) and maybe focus peaking for the existing ones. Three bodies @$1000 is near a grown up interchangeable lens system.

are you serious? that is just what I predicted/wished for (ok I would have been happy with a 50/4, but 2.8 is very cool if it is close to the dp2m lens quality). very cool if true

well if it would be possible to make the dpm series with interchangeable lenses, that would be great of course, but I fear due to the required high precision that might be very hard or expensive (more expensive, or lesser quality than the 3 separate bodys)

Actually it look like a "rumour" but my little finger tell me she is probably true giving the source of the rumour. Me too I'm really excited about this body because, in facts, I need it. I was on a pack shoot session for a client and the DP2 Merrill is exceptional in "reproduction" work. I was a little short with some items, on stage, ended up at cropping the final picture (more than enough for the client, between).

This new DP3 sound good; very good. My guess is that the bokeh will be very good, at first, and the MACRO design will give pretty sharp pictures.

Exciting time we are living no ?  Cheesy

Sure Michael is excited by this info too.

My little finger say to me that the "f2.8 design" is mandatory to have optimal quality/compromise with the sensor/body/size factor.

An another winner in my pocket as soon he is unleashed !

I'll be tempted once again. But honestly, how far do these cameras go without Adobe Camera Raw/Lightroom/Aperture?

This is great news. However, I still heave a great sigh over no AdobeRAW support. That and an EVF would be SO convincing.

Adobe support is inevitable. An EVF is highly unlikely.

I and many others are doing just fine without either.

H,
how do you plan to shoot a 75mm without a viewfinder?
This is one camera which will make people crave for a vf...

Jeremy,
I think nandadevieast was referring to an optical viewfinder. 
Shooting a 75mm lens in macro mode would be extremely difficult if photographing flowers outdoors... even on days with absolutely no wind.  The DP Merrills require rock solid support IF you expect to pull the optimum sharpness from this wonderful lens/sensor combination.  It's already extremely difficult to get sharp images with the close-up lens on the DP2M if you're not on a tripod... and shooting flowers or other macro subjects outdoors will require a tripod if you expect the best results.  If you're just looking for a jpg shot to post online there are dozens of cameras that will do this better than the Merrills.

Macro photography with the new DP3M will be nerve wracking without a tripod... and even then your image will have to be absolutely still as you can't use iso's over 200 and get optimum results.
