PopPhoto DP1 Review

not sure if i'm posting this in the right section, please move it as appropriate

Pop Photo's got their review of the DP1 out
Camera Test: Sigma DP1 - - PopPhotoMarch 2008

overall they liked it a lot ... this will definitely be an interesting camera, when/if it drops in price ... interesting that they recommend composing w/ the screen and that the optical viewfinder isn't so great

I have had my eye on the DP1 too. It does seem to deliver in the IQ department, the lens seems to be very good indeed. Too bad the other departments seem a bit of a letdown, and it kinda ends up as a very quirky cam with great IQ, a big contrast to some of the very fast and convenient p&s cams out there, when choosing a walk around pocket cam. Although if they do a DP2 it would be great. How about a lens like leica vari elemar, not zoom but 3 switchable fixed lengths. and put a focusing ring on the lens.
