For maxgruzen, and anyone else interested:  I  haven't figured out how to upload photos (of course, I haven't taken the time to try, so perhaps soon), but I measured the Voitlander 75mm viewfinder.  It sits exactly 27/32nds of an inch above the top level of the hotshoe, and is exactly that same amount wide.  It is round, with a very attractive styling, posh looking, kind of Art Deco.  And, befitting its lovely appearance, it actually comes in a little cobalt blue velveteen drawstring bag like a piece of jewelry.  It fits very snugly into the hotshoe, more so than the black Voitlander I got for the DP2M (which wasn't an exact match focal length-wise, but close enough).  I wear about a size 7 ring, and that is the size and appearance of the viewfinder, just this small ring sitting atop the camera. --Barbara
Thanks Barbara, The Merrill viewfinder I have on the DP2 is 24/32 X 24/32; just a hair smaller then the Voitlander. I'll give the Voitlander a try.I really want that " little cobalt blue velveteen drawstring bag".  Getting expensive having to buy one of this for each Merrill. I miss Port Townsand.....Max

The 75mm Voigtlander is only half the price of the wider one, and looks much more interesting.  Fort Worden at Port Townsend is indeed one of my favorite shooting locations.  I would hate to move out of this area.  --Barbara

...in studio, it blow away any camera under 30 MP, your poor a850 die hard face to him, sorry (just because you a850 do not have any kind of LV).
Hulyss, amazing studio results with DP3M! I have no doubt DP3M produces better IQ @ iso100-160, it's the comfort of use and external light support that don't favor the DP3M camera (for me).

They're all different creative tools.
Thanks K.C. I 100% agree with you.

Why is nobody using the Sigma dSLR with the same sensor?

I used it. But the lack of LV is a very big problem ...

God these pictures look good... especially the pinecore macro, I've never seen such depth and "relief" before.

I'm still getting familiar with the DP2M... pictures are so realistic it's almost scary.

My guess is, it's because of slow/outdated camera functions & features (besides the sensor) and no native support of Canon/Nikon/Sony & 3d party lenses.

Hello joni,

There is some speculation about it, but I have two guess :

¤ The cash back is Japan only but It as been announced in Australia too, with 300$ cash back so... that lead me to the second option >>

¤ SIGMA is an Empire. The governor is SIGMA JAPAN but every other SIGMA are somehow independent. I think the cash back will come BUT every SIGMA need to set it on his own, thus some delay.

Cross your fingers Smiley

I think it's because you can get the DP2M and DP3M for $1,800 with very high performance lenses included, while the DSLR is currently $1900 (normally $2300) and is limited to Sigma SLR lenses, which don't seem to be even close to the DPM lenses, except maybe the new 35mm f/1.4.  Also the functionality of the Sigma SLR isn't so great compared to a Nikon or Canon.

So people who are skeptical or new to Sigma will want to test the waters with a cheap "point-and-shoot" (except it's not a point-and-shoot, it's more like a secret weapon).  LOL

Hulyss is getting my appetite up for the DP.  I wonder why they don't introduce a DP-X with three (or so) interchangeable lenses corresponding to the lenses on the DP-1,2,3?  I would jump on that camera in a heartbeat.

Good question Edmund.  The answer is that the SD-1 with the interchangeable lenses simply doesn't give the same results as the DP-2 (and now 3).  It has been suggested by those who should know that a couple of the newer lenses get the SD-1 close, but there is real magic in a lens matched so perfectly to a sensor, it seems.
