The Sigma DP2 has a14 megapixel Foveon X3 sensor at the heart of its digital capture. On the front is a fixed 41mm equivalent f2.8 Sigma lens. The DP2 also has features that appeal to serious shooters including Raw image file format, automatic or completely manual settings including manual focus, as well as a built-in flash and an available hot shoe mounted on top.
“While I continue to admire Sigma’s devotion to putting a larger imaging sensor in a smaller camera—something their well-funded rivals are still, apparently, incapable of doing—I’m afraid the DP2 has too many liabilities for me to recommend it. If you’re still interested in finding out what all the fuss is about with this technology, seek out the lower-priced, wider-angled Sigma DP1 instead.”
