likeafoxow: All those pictures, and not a single one of a person actually holding that strange looking camera. How do I know if that shape will work ergonomically?!
Lol. Nobody seems to know how to hold it.
I dub thee "Limo" as in stretch Limousine. The Sigma Limo.
The right side strap lug looks like it will be a bother.
kinglau711: This camera is a joke :)
That is yet to be determined. Be prepared to chew on raven.
The new cams look "Star Trek" but serious but lose the inconspicuous nature it the others that I liked. I hope the image quality far exceeds the A7r or else it will only be known as a quirky camera. Do I want a few? Hell yeah.
I can't wait for fuji x30 comparison shots.This seems pretty sweet though.
I can see a third party horizontal grip attaching to the tripod mount with an additional tripod mount L bracket center to lens barrel. This cam seriously needs a wifi option for remote capture and a cable release socket.
It would be interesting to have a sensor of two layers, quad blue on top and a semi random Fuji like array of red and green underneath. 20 megapixels in both layers. This would reduce the limitation of red issue being under only one layer instead of two. Any thoughts? Am I crazy?
Maybe Sigma or third party will make an add on grip for the older DPM's to have the same grip as these :). Never mind... I will do it and make tens of dollars ;)
maxnimo: That rear grip makes it stable to hold in hand, otherwise it slips out of your grasp.
Perfect!I will tape my iPhone to it for the ultimate camera phone!!! :)! :)! :)!
wolfie: Should be the progenitor of a new genre for unpocketable cameras - heck I even wonder how it will do on a wrist or neck strap!
I think Sigma have plenty of important issues like battery life and operational speed, even maybe some WR capability, before trying to take on Hasselblad for outrageous designs destined to be self-sales-killers.
Sigma will come out with Lux models for people who equate price with taste. Maybe wrap it in stingray or crocodile leather. I prefer stingray for the extra grip it provides. The down side to this camera is all the confused expressions on people's faces in the images.
Hassy has made shark jumping an Olympic sport.Speaking of sharks, does it come in shark skin? That would give good grip!
Lab D: Very solid looking camera. It looks better built than the A7 and should perform much faster. There are more lenses too. :)I can see a lot of A7s, DFs and even E-M1s going on E-Bay.
not so many E-M1's
Such a shame that such a great camera has and will cause so much frothing venom thrown at it and those who like it here. I like it! Spew away blowhards!
JackM: It would take a lot of other features and capability to get me to give up an OVF. I hope this does not mean the end of the XPro.
The hybrid EVF OVF is the coolest. I hope they keep that going!
binauralbeats: Just saw the pics of the rear... now that is an EVF worthy of a hump... wow. It's so big they could've just left the main lcd screen out.
You like eh da hump eh ?Da hump is good eh ?(80s SNL reference. Name that skit)
photobeans: Wow..sexy, but FUJI lenses are wallet busters. Still, do want.
Not beer budget lenses but you just need the one you shoot most. I would want this as a street shooter with the 14mm.
Ian SS: For me, I own a X100, for snap I use it and other times I use 5DIII, unless it is full frame like Sony A7, it is not for me.
I use the 5DIII just for snaps when I don't care. Unless it is large format it's garbage and useless.
You could have this by your side to "Look pro" and use the x100s or XE2 or ______M43 camera for your real shots. Lol!
One could buy the new Fuji 85mm and get a body as well at this price. Pany is paying too much for the Leica logo. Is the Leica logo worth that much? Is it $600 better than the Fuji? Time will tell.
