Actually the camera is the Sigma DP3 Merrill, 46 megapixels of Foveon magic, with its matched fixed 50mm lens, when properly shot in good light on a tripod delivers extremely sharp photos in both Jpeg and Raw.  The raw files are 50 megabytes each.  As I delve into the photos (pixel peep), the images remain sharp until you almost get to pixelization, allowing you to see far more detail in your photos than most Bayer photos, with the  exception of the 36 mp Nikon D800 and the A7r.

And yes,  the sensor is an aps c.

Unfortunately, the limitations of this chip for low light use make it a specialty camera for me, since I already have an A77.
