Now seriously, do you think anyone here is capable of being objective ?
Bernard you're a highly accomplished photographer. You lost objectivity about equipment years ago or you wouldn't have the portfolio that you do. You, like all of us with years of experience, have strong preferences and biases based on that experience. And thankfully so.
Sure, you are of course correct.
My point was merely that the DP2m is a new camera to me, I am privately and publicly neutral about it and have no agenda at all. I didn't spend that much money on it but still enough money that I would like it to deliver value. I like the form factor, but have at least 2 alternatives that work well for me also.
Now, I do indeed have experience using a wide variety of equipment and I have come to assume certain characteristics as granted. Some is my personal preference, some is simply a measure of the level reached by other cameras.
In the end the only thing that really matters is my satisfaction in terms of being able to produce images I am happy about in a reasonnable amount of time.
Previous comments had led me to think that this thread was about that, but I got a lot more answers to my mention of short battery life than to the post where I linked to 3 high res images... So I am not that certain anymore.
