It's interesting that the DP* owners are posting so much more interesting pictures than the M240 owners :)
Sigma may not be capable of selling $7K 50 mm lenses, but they sure seem capable of making good point and shoots.

I keep looking at these merril DP threads, some great images and the files though jpegs viewed on an ipad seem to have something special about them. And more of a difference than that visible between MFD/35mm (very little)

About 20 minutes ago UPS dropped off my DP-3 and voigtlander 75mm viewfinder. As I type this I am charging the 2 batteries and just finished downloading SPP. Hopefully before lunch today I will get out some test images. has any body felt the need to use the RRS L bracket and or grip?? Currently I am going to search for my RRS "universal" camera plate.

Exactly the setup, I've decided, that suits me best. I extend the universal bracket to the hole where it clears the battery. It kind of gives me a left handed handle. It allows me to function all the controls with my right fingers as well as my thumb as I've got large hands. Also when holding the camera, manual focus is as easy as extending my left index to adjust the lens. This same system works very well with  my RX100. I now find the right sided grip useless.  ;D

Interesting. I use my 40D L plate on the DP-2 Merrill, obtaining the left hand handle and easy button and focusing access. The L-plate is attached so that it clears the battery/SD door.

Nice photo Stefan :) Yes it is normal that the lens make some noise in manual focus. It work by piezoelectric impulsions and the noise is the impulsion.

It rain outside so I have fun indoor composing visuals :)

Ho by the way I get attacked by "Loyd Chamber" about my professionalism because I said in my report that colors out of the DP3 Merrill are more accurate than DP2 Merrill.

I stay in my positions, as I'm not a professional reviewer but a Professional photographer who have an artist and painter eye. When there is a difference I see it and I'm not the only possessor of DP3m to have noticed a change (beneficial).

But, as I say, I am not a reviewer (yet) and I don't give into forum ego/polemics.

With all due respect to this reviewer.

I have to say, in his case, he works very hard for the money.  And he covers some very useful issues that others don't cover in detailed fashion.  If I were buying a high-end kit from scratch, I think the price would be worth it in terms of money and headaches saved.

Yes I respect totally ppl work. Some can be weirdo but I respect it. This is just sad that all is monetised today.
