    Taken in Toulon of an ex French seaman looking for hand outs, Can any DSLR match the quality of the DP3 Merril at its best lighting condition.[​IMG][/url]Cassis by chorkie-dad, on Flickr[/IMG]

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Well, yeah, the 36mp sensors with the right lens can match it and the 24mp come pretty close - arguably close enough not to matter. But no question the DPM series punches WAAAAAAY above it's weight if you're ok with it it's limits and processing the files...

    Awesome shot, BTW!

    Actually the DP Merrills have given medium formats run for their money in terms of IQ and this is something even my DSLR A7R with Zeiss 50 1.4 cant match. Its the pop factor.

    Agree, I have just purchased a D610 Nikon and even the 50m 1.8G cannot match the DP3

    That is a incredible file. So much detail. Within their narrow functional window, I am a believer. Would love to borrow one.

    The effect reminds of the old sharpening technique in Photoshop using the High Pass Filter on a duplicate layer and overlaying it, but there was a very fine line between just enough and too much and particularly so with portraits.
