Default What an incredible camera - The DP-2

I can't express how happy I am with my purchase of the DP-2. While I originally bought it with the intention of just taking landscape shots of the location I shoot wildlife, I've started to enjoy it as a perfect "Street" photographer tool.

The resolving power is simply amazing!

Here's a 100 percent crop of a shot I took of the Cooper Union in Manhattan





Now here's a 60 percent crop of the same image...




I have for to get a gig with Sigma, because I feel like a salesperson...

If people want to see other examples, I'll be happy to oblige!

I just can't help myself.

Here is a full frame image, followed by a 100 percent crop, followed by a 200 percent crop!

That really is amazing sharpness. But don't credit the camera entirely. Good camera handling was a big contribution.

He, heh, he...

Nahh, I credit the camera. I've owed a dozen digital cameras, and while my D2x can out resolve the DP-2; not by much. And even though it can outresolve the Sigma, there is more "dirt" in the images. No way could I get a clean image at 200 percent.

I always own a P&S to simply carry around with me - But this machine is infinetely better then any I've used. It's only fault is the lack of a viewfinder. The optional viewfinder, does not have any electronic ties to the camera and is only good for framing.
