The Sigma DP family of compact cameras today got an exciting new addition. The Sigma DP3 Merrill is mostly identical to its siblings the DP1 & DP2 Merrill except for one important part, the lens. It features a 50mm (75mm equivalent) F2.8 macro lens. It has a minimum focus distance of 22.6cm resulting in a 1:3 magnification. The focal length makes the camera very suitable for portrait photography.
The camera will be available in February 2013.

This is pretty exciting. Sigma is definitely filling out their lineup. As some mentioned on DPReview, it would be cool for Sigma to offer a bundle on their website of all three of them with a discount of a few hundred dollars if you bought the bundle. I am excited to see over the next few years how they fill out their camera and lens lineup.
