The Sigma DP3 Merrill produces stunning sharpness in the field, delivering detail that conventional Bayer sensors cannot.
These examples with the Sigma DP3 Merrill in the White Mountains are presented in HD and Ultra-HD sizes.
One has to wonder why the Sigma DP Merrill cameras cannot offer a high-res EVF option similar to the Sony RX1R or Olympus E-M1, which would add a lot to field usability and low shutter speed usability. Time for an upgrade. Better yet, make it built-in.
For that matter, the results with a full-frame sensor at the same pixel density would deliver mind-boggling results at 34 megapixels that would rival even high-res medium format cameras. We can always hope for an upgrade though I deem a full-frame sensor unlikely any time soon.

I enjoy using it to produce focus-stacked images of plants like this one, evading depth of field limitations, and I simply love the ultra-detailed results. The auto-zooming function, to help with manual focus, is well suited to that kind of work. This camera is a darn good tool for product photography.
DIGLLOYD: it’s a very fine camera indeed. By “auto zooming”, Florent means magnified Live View with manual focus.
