lacikuss: Is this a Sony sensor?
No it is a French Sensor.

Hell yea !! Independence for Scotland !!
haa!!! ELITE PRO !!! wow not for me then !
Nice and original :) I want more !
ebrandon: What a fantastic test. This is precisely the information someone choosing between the A7r and the A7s would want.I applaud not just your careful methodology getting these revealing images, but also the work and analysis that went into your conclusions.Thanks DPreview!
Brown - nose spotted !!
The Squire: Wow. Usable 25600! And another stop up for web use. Amazing.
I think I'd but the A7s if it had a few mainstream Sony lenses to keep the price down. With 12MP I don't think I need £800+ Zeiss glass. An FE version of Sony's 50mm would be fine, thanks, at <£300.
You are wrong. A lot of D700 users trowed it before puting awesome glass on it. When you plug an awesome glass on the D700, the camera deliver outstanding pictures, like you have a new camera in your hands.
3dreal: Pity i have still only winxp. maybe powerful pcs are also needed. see sigma software.
I have an extremely powerful PC (High end Quadro, SSD, CPU and memory). SPP does not improve with power. Still shitty.
Ho yea ?? Lol
gsum: Why post a link to this foul-mouthed ranter? - big mistake DPR.
gsum ... We all know you are Masaya Maeda !! You so lame at defending your reputation !!
Jules Design: ok so I shoot product photography with a D800 and 105 mm prime tethered, in-studio, I meter the light, gray card. Will this baby outperform my current camera???
Foveon works great for me :p
Trollshavethebestcandy: 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.
This camera use USB cable trigger.
Baxter Bad: All this confusion about the ergonomics. Maybe Sigma polled its customers and learned that 95% of DPs are being used for landscapes and studio portraits, so they decided to make the next versions highly specialized for tripod work.
We get a wide body that lets you change the battery without taking the camera off the tripod. A "reversed" grip with all the controls on the back (including focus) and offset for easy access - we never have to reach for the focus ring. Optical finder only - perfect for landscapes, removable for the studio.
Well, that's my guess about the design rationale. Or maybe all the employees were playing too much Flappy Bird.
Actually, I you used at least one DP Merrill, it is possible to change battery without un-mounting the tripod plate.

Guys .. this photo is not the actual product this is a PS trick. The DPq do not have this shape...
AV Janus: So it will make a photo with resolution of T:5,424×3,616 true 19MP in raw?
Other resolutions like: 1:1 5,120×5,120 or 3:2 7,680×5,120 are just JPEG up-scales or interpolation ? ?
Yes for the raws. The green and red layers have the same surface as the blue layer, 23.5×15.7mm.
The thing is that the GREEN and RED layers have much bigger pixels, 4 pixels binned in one. That is done for the CAPTION part. Much more sensitivity.
The signal after processing is pretty simple, without any interpolations as some said: This is division of the GREEN and RED layers in a certain %age, after the caption.
For the full jpeg, yea it look like some extrapolation.
mpgxsvcd: That camera looks awkward.
Actually... your name look awkward.
yabokkie: an ergonomic nightmare but there are many buyers who don't care ergonomics nor image quality.
@ Ranford Stealth :
:) I think my power is pretty limited around this part. I'll try but I need to studies the beast before.
I'll do ;)
Isn't this yabokkie and legendary goblin lugging around ?? :D
I heard of him. Man you have a superb reputation ;) Keep up the good work !
