The DP2’s integral standard lens is brand-new and purpose-designed, with a focal length equivalent to 41mm in a 35mm camera. We wanted to allow photographic effects beyond the scope of the focal length of the wide-angle lens of the DP1, which is equivalent to 28mm in a 35mm camera. So we gave the DP2 a standard-range focal length more suitable for snapshots and portraits.
Still, we also wanted the DP2 to deliver the unique 3-D feel and texture that made the DP1 so special. We gave it the kind of MTF and all-round lens performance only possible with single-index models. When it comes to the textural feel of the images, when focal length and F-numbers make all the difference, we’ve made sure that the DP2 is right up there with the DP1.
Meanwhile, we’ve tweaked the DP2’s user interface, making it even easier to shoot pictures just the way you want. While respecting your autonomy as an artist, we’ve built in all the photographic functions you need. Since the DP2 is a lightweight compact, we want you to carry it around every day. That’s why we’ve made it a more complete photographic tool.
