Photography Blog has reviewed the Foveon camera Sigma DP2.

Some key features for the Sigma DP2:
-14 megapixel Foveon sensor
-2.5″ LCD screen
-41mm f/2.8 lens
-ISO sensitivity from 50 to 1600
-weight 260 grams

Photography Blog ends up giving the Sigma DP2 a “Recommended” rating as the camera is able to take pictures of very good quality. The DP2 also scores high on design and ease of use, but it does not get the highest score because there are other cameras out there that give the Sigma DP2 a lot of competition. Examples of these cameras are the Micro Four Thirds cameras from Panasonic and Olympus.
Kudos to Sigma for taking a chance and producing a compact camera where image quality is in focus.

We testet Samsung, Sony, olympus and the new Sigma dp2s in September on the Photokina in cologne. The Sigma dp2s is still the one, only the Ricoh gxr12 with the 50mm lens brings more quality, but – with the lens, to big – this is not a compact camera for me. The Sigma dp2s brings best Quality for this price. Negativ = Autofocus verry slow -2-4 sec. I shoot with manual focus and I love this little thing. On Tour with Canon 5DII and Sigma dp2s.
