Get the Sigma DP Merrill at B&H Photo.

What kind of detail can the Sigma DP3 Merrill deliver? How good is the lens over and above sharpness alone and what is the best aperture?

This aperture series includes f/2.8, f/4, f/5.6, f/8, f/9, f10, f11/, f/13, the latter apertures being included to assess the effects of diffraction (discussion included).

I continue to be impressed with the image quality of these DP Merrill cameras. Thanks for the examples. This shot of the barn looks almost like an 8x10 contact print! Amazing crisp detail.

I rented the DP1 and just shot hand held with it. Not using a tripod, and not really caring to much-just firing away, I thought would get reasonable results. Of course the battery sucked and LCD was pretty useless as everyone knows, but when I opened up the files I was blown away at the sharpness and beautiful depth of field characteristics of the lens. It makes me wish my D800E files could look that good, but in my opinion there is no comparison. Just more megapixels but not near as sharp. Hopefully we will see this Foveon technology in a full frame Nikon, Canon or Sony. Outstanding!

DIGLLOYD: Indeed, it is not just the sensor, but the superlative lens quality on all three DP Merrill cameras, lenses that compare favorably to Leica M or Zeiss lenses. A lens matched to the sensor is the absolute best solution.
