Sigma DP3 Merrill: Natural Light Portraits in Ultra HD

I printed a few portraits on the Canon PIXMA Pro-100 today and I was so enthralled with the superlative detail from the Sigma DP3 Merrill that I elected to supplement the existing examples page with Ultra-HD versions, because 4K displays are already beginning to appear, and I don’t want my examples to look small on 4K displays in 2014 and beyond.

Ultra-HD portraits with the Sigma DP3 Merrill.

There’s only one issue: these images might make you want to buy a Sigma DP3 Merrill (and its DP1 and DP2 siblings). My whining over the lack of EVF and battery life aside, the image quality is spectacular.

The DP3M close up portraits series left a deep wound. You may be forcing me to do something about it. Do you know what I got the most excited about? That rich creamy blur in the background.

DIGLLOYD: Sorry! The DP3M offers unmatched image quality for its form factor, with a lens that ought to make Leica fans uncomfortable paying 12X more for something different, but not better. And for a measly $899. If Sigma had a full-frame 24MP sensor, I’d be all over it.
