Guys, this is crazy. Don´t understand to this discussion.

These people kid themselves that others are reading their spats and forming judgments of who wins. The rest of us only form negative judgments on these people filling up the screen before we put them on Ignore.

They don't even seem to be arguing about the newest sensor. Because they actually have no experience and have not even read a review of it.

Without applying advanced mathematics I can't help suspecting the new quattro sensor is a bit of a con. Sigma seem to be addressing arguments over its resolution by providing high resolution in only one colour, blue. Seemingly an odd thing to do, especially if Bayer design reflects that we are more sensitive to green. Are Sigma more trying to emulate black & white film? We were advised to put uv filters on b&w because it was more sensitive to the blue end.

Perhaps Sigma's strangest mistake will be the non-interchangeable lens. If their sensor is so uniquely attractive, an enthusiast will soon find he has to buy three of them. It will be a bit pricey for a proprietary design with limited production scale.

I think most people would welcome something new that adds something meaningful to the market, but I'm not sure a 5MP sensor with a perceptual fudge is it. I am concerned they are wasting r+d on something that will just be another curiosity at a fraction of its price on ebay in a few years time.
