A couple of things I'm curious about.
Does it have digital zoom with video? Combined with the crop sensor and AF at f8 this would be interesting for nature videographers.
Will it be supported by DPP4? Or is that only for FF.
New AF and Sensor, dual card slots, AF af F8. It all looks pretty good to me, I'll be buying one at Christmas for sure. Unless some terrible flaws are discovered by early adopters.
brelip: oh, and great job Sigma. Though i do wish the C is APSC only to save more weight...
Actually if you look at Sigma's homepage it says the 'C' is lighter than the 'S'.
ssh33: Capitalism? I love capitalism! Capitalism is the the right to private property, the right to own. Adobe wants to take that right away from me. I can't own the tools I use, I can't even open my content that I spent countless hours on if I stop paying Adobe. In essence I don't own the fruits of my labor. Really?
What I CAN do is embrace the competition.
Here is a CONSTRUCTIVE suggestion: after a year of payments I own what I paid for - if I stop paying, you stop the updates. Fair?
"after a year of payments I own what I paid for - if I stop paying, you stop the updates."
I wouldn't mind that, even raise it to 2 years........
Owashi: "We don't have plans to make Lightroom a subscription-only option but we do envision added functionality for the CC version of Lightroom."
I don't like the sound of that. So we have to pay for CC or get a dumbed down version of Lightroom?
Carlos I think James was making the point that the standalone version of LR may end up being a streamlined version (lacking many features) of the CC version rather like PS Elements is to the full CS/CC Photoshop.
