In my quest to improve capture quality of landscapes for large wall prints (40"+) I decided to order up a DP1M and a DP3M. Most of my landscapes in recent years have been done with m4/3. I've made some impressive 40" canvas prints with the m4/3 gear, but have demand for larger prints in the 50" to 60" range. So, I'm hoping the Sigmas may help me achieve those sizes with greater clarity and detail. 40" @ 100 ppi is about at the limit of what I can push m4/3 to with printing on canvas. I just got the Sigmas and haven't had a chance to take them anywhere exciting, but around my house... I am a bit stunned by the degree of micro-contrast and fine detail these cameras can capture! These cameras definitely are well suited to desert landscapes. The fine spines on cacti are rendered with great detail and precision. Taken from my back porch. I made an image with the GX7 and 12-35, at 15mm, ISO 200, f/5.6. And another image with the DP1M, nearly identical FOV, ISO 100, f/8. Here's how tight the crop was on the images: The m4/3 crop: The DP1M crop: The detail in the fine foliage is amazing. These cameras excel at capturing fine textures and details. Here are a few more images with the DP1M, which are all very heavy/tight crops of much larger images. I am posting the tight crops, rather than the full images, as it allows seeing the fine detail on the dumbed-down Photobucket jogs. I think these little DP Merrills are going to be tagging along with my m4/3 gear whenever I head out to shoot. They are not well-suited to applications requiring fast follow focus, quick moving children, high ISO's, or low light levels. And most of my shooting isn't that anyway. But when the light is sufficient and fast AF isn't required... these cameras can produce stunning image quality. I think my Gitzo CF tripod will begin to see some use with these cameras and landscapes! The DP Merrills each sell for little more than the cost of a reasonably-priced premium m4/3 lens. I paid about $1350 for both cameras. DP1M has 28mm equiv. FOV and DP3M has 75mm equiv. FOV. I can't wait to get the DP1M and DP3M out into the desert behind my house (Tonto National Forest).
