Sigma DP2 in UK

Sigma on Thursday acted on its word and launched the long-delayed DP2 in the UK. The 14-megapixel camera is a cross between regular compacts and digital SLRs and continues to hinge on its FOVEON sensor, which is significantly larger than in point-and-shoots and helps produce more professional images, particularly in RAW mode. It also gets full manual controls and, since it was first shown last year, now has light sensitivity up to ISO 3,200 as well as a quick-access button for some of the more common camera settings.

It comes with a fixed, tailor-made 24.2mm f2.8 lens and has a hot shoe for an external flash. New with the launch are an electronic viewfinder option as well as a lens hood. The DP2 sells in the UK for 600 ($914) while the hood and viewfinder cost 20 ($30) and 115 ($175) respectively. An American release is expected but hasn't been announced. [via DPReview]

    so the actual resolution

    I take it that the actual resolution, measured as picture elements (pixels) is, as usual, 14.2 / 3 or 4.73?

    re: Actual Resolution

    Indeed. And of course, it's more than enough for any pro or amateur photographer. I don't see why MacNN has to boast for them. It's 4.7 MP and they're proud of it.
