If there was any doubt the Quattro had some interest, this should dispel that notion...

Even the Google cached version will not load:

This is a sample table entry in the Websphere generated web page :

<A href="SDIM0320.JPG"><img class="thum" src="thumbs/SDIM0320_s.JPG" width="640" height="427" alt="SDIM0320"></A></td>

So we have six pictures pointers, namely SDIM0320.jpg, SDIM0096.jpg, SDIM0072.jpg, SDIM0016.jpg, SDIM0534.jpg and SDIM0431.jpg

I tried from NY ; these are the last hops in traceroute :

Also I searched google cache for SDIM0320.jpg in the past 24 hours and the parent directory appears as 12 hours old, but still no luck.

Just managed to get a glimpse of two thumbnails from google cache, so you know the pointers might be right.

Just in case I would need to grab a DP3M before they disappear !

Here is a third thumbnail that took about 30 minutes to load even though I am using a proxy from U.S. directly into Tokyo :

Here's the link to the top left image (a tall building), I was also able to get the google cache to cough up about half the content as well as the translated text about the images:

http://digitalcamera.jp/html/HotNews/image/2014-06/17/sigma_dp2Q_beta/SDIM0320.JPG

The text for the leftmost image you are showing:

"Daylight I realize the descriptive power to surpass or comparable to medium-format camera or 35mm full-size machine. The show power in landscape photography you want to stick to the depiction of details. Gradient evening also pretty."

The link is now loading after a few tries, though at 300 baud speeds it would seem.  Sure wish they had used S3 or some other image distribution network to host those...

take forever to load but if these pictures come from Quattro, initial impression is very very positive.

thank you Chris but uploading pictures to dp only degrades quality of pictures.

The thumbnails look fine. Too bad there isn't a second website to host the files.

I try to host it when finished loading. so far I have seen building part. gray/silver looks good and resolution looks good. very sharp even from far.

Very nice of you, thanks for doing that. You can probably remove them tomorrow when the site recovers...

These all are looking really good. I can see some faint noise in the sky of the night image but not much in shadows with good light.

Also the ISO 200 (green leaf closeup) looks fantastic as far as noise and color.

Slowest download I've seen in 10 years.  Cityscape looks very sharp. Sky a little noisy.

Also the ISO 200 (green leaf closeup) looks fantastic as far as noise and color.

The leaf and bridge photos are taken with a newer firmware. All shots appear to be OOC JPEGs since "Software" in the EXIF doesn't say SPP version but just a camera/firmware edition (assuming that the Quattro EXIF behaves the same as Merrill).

Looking forward to the first RAW samples...

Great news if so since that usually means better noise handling, and it also means better dynamic range.

Also in some areas I saw what looked like JPG compression artifacts, I was wondering what Q level those were saved at.

Looking forward to the first RAW samples...

Oh yes!
