Both for an even $950 shipped.
Five batteries and two chargers for each camera. Total of 4 chargers and 10 batteries.

Will post photos of the gear later tonight or tomorrow.

Both in excellent condition and work well. Images are excellent.

I just have too much gear and can't justify carrying it all these days.

This image is from the DP3 Merrill


The tire swing image is from the DP2 Merrill


Both cameras work well. Fixed lens so never a problem with dust on the sensor.

IF you want to work with the Sigma Merrill bodies you need to be aware they are slower than many on the market. The battery life is not great - this the 5 batteries per body. I treated them as 36 exposure rolls of film. Reality is I got more exposures most of the time but figuring it this way kept me aware of battery life as I photographed.

Image quality is excellent. No way to go wrong there. A tripod is a big help in getting all the detail and beauty these sensors can capture. If you work a bit more deliberately than handheld you will be rewarded for it with images that really look good.

If you guy both the price is $950 shipped. Just one it is $500 shipped.

I'm shooting more with the 5x7 view camera and paring down gear. That is the reason for the sale. I do know from experience the cameras work well in 23 below zero and 122 above, our North Dakota winter to Death Valley summer.

They don't like high ISO settings - but you buy these to use more carefully and at lower ISO settings to take full advantage of the quality they can produce.

I'll put up photos later tonight or tomorrow - I can't figure out how to put more than two images on this post so most likely tomorrow evening.

Payment is US Postal Money Order or check and I would like to talk with you on the phone before the sale so you and I are on the same page about the cameras. I don't do PayPal.

Shipment is US Postal Priority Mail or UPS/FedEx - insured for full value. I prefer a US Sale but will go out of country if you pay the extra shipping cost and are aware and agree to pay any customs charges or fees.

Questions? Feel free to ask. Here or email will work. I use the gear and am not a reseller on this one. The images from the merrill bodies is excellent and will reward a photographer who likes working for very good images rather than shoot & pray results.
