Sigma’s long awaited high-end compact, the DP2, has arrived in the UK, priced £599.99.
The DP2 houses an APS-C size Foveon imaging sensor.
Key differences of the DP2 over the DP1 compact include a 24.2mm f/2.8 lens.
The fixed focal length optic delivers the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 41mm lens (the DP1 features a 28mm (f/4) equivalent lens).
The DP2 uses the same Foveon X3 direct imaging sensor as deployed on the SD15 DSLR and DP1 compact. The SD15 is due to be launched this summer.
A viewfinder accessory, the VF-21 will cost £114.99.
The camera kit will include a new version of Sigma PhotoPro software, which will also open raw files captured using previous Sigma digital cameras, says the firm.
