The DP2M fits in a large-ish purse. --Barbara
I carry the DP2M, with lens hood attached, in one of:
- side pocket of cargo pants
- front pocket of field jacket
- front pocket of Think Tank Retrospective bag
- front pocket of my small 15"-laptop-toting soft briefcase
- front pocket of chinos (with lens sticking out)
IQ per volume is unsurpassed. Cleanliness of details seems as good as or better than 24 MP full-frame Sony. I have a whole set of test shots comparing the DP2M to the Sony a900 with Sigma 50/1.4 and the (identical to the Sony a900) Sony a850 with the Zeiss 24-70/2.8 at 45, but I haven't had the time to process them yet.
I, too, am looking for a small satchel to carry the DP2M, a herd of batteries, the charger, the close-up lens (works
), and -- since you can't put the lens cap on the camera with the lens hood attached (?!), the lens cap. I guess I could use one of my full-frame lens pouches ... .
Today I ordered the Flipbac G2 tape-on grip enhancer. Two days ago I ordered two more batteries, and a house/car charger. Four charged batteries should last half a day, as long as you set everything to minimize power consumption.
Fwiw, I tried the Sigma VF but did not find it useful. Not accurate enough for composition, imho, but the real problem was getting a consistent view while wearing eyeglasses.
