Xuereb, if I could ebay you our rain, you could have it for free. It is positively biblical here in the West Country.
bought the DP2M two days ago, and I completely agree with everything you say and will take your advice. A simple comparison I did just blew my mind.

Your weather reminds me of the sort of conditions I experienced, and worked in, during my years in the Middle East in the 1970's. I don't think I've been really warm since. Yet another day taken away today with more rain, then we are promised something a bit drier. It's become our wettest year on record, and for the first three months of 2012 we were in a drought situation, a strange year.

I'm looking forward to the experience.

I have had mine (DP2M) since October and have taken a few shots with it. It's raining today in Devon but Sidmouth was dry for a while on Christmas Day.
I think my biggest problem with this camera is going to be trying to be ruthless with editing - too many big files clogging up the hard drive. They may all have great IQ but they sure aren't all works of art!

Yes Lee it takes time to overcome the temptation to process each exposure to see how this camera renders detail, texture and colour. I have only just stopped illustrating and begun interpretation.
Your seascape is very worthy

I viewed the pics above on a large iMac screen. There may be bias creeping in here but the dp shots at least equal if not better. They seem to have greater definition. Was out last weekend taking shots of a local manor house and old parish church. The detail captured is amazing and still leaves me speechless. Best thing is, albeit a wide focus range, the ability to crop and still get a3 prints means its like carrying a high quality zoom compact. Absolutely love it.
Thanks for some great comparison shots dear chap.

Dave the black and whites look very good. Do you find that the foveon sensor does an especially well with black and white conversions?
