On old blue pavement... in the Sigma Challenge challenge (1 comment in total)

This shot was NOT taken with a Sigma camera. Why was it not disqualified?

Nice overall framing and composition.
Pity the face is out of focus.

Marty4650: I hope the folks who say "Sigma should stop making lenses with Nikon mounts" realize that is precisely how Sigma makes a living. The lions share of their revenue comes from selling lenses to Canon and Nikon users.

You could probably take all the Sigma SA mount users and have a group meeting with them in a two car garage.

If you've got a two car garage, you can host it. I'll even let you try a Sigma + Sigma lens combo. You will definitely like it.

BayAreaWZ: Great interview. It's rare executives speak without marketing spin. I wouldn't be surprised if this interview didn't just boost dp Quattro preorders or at least intent.

Sigma DO produce both a 150 and 180mm Macro. Check their website.

Kazuto Yamaki strikes me as new kind of businessman. He's is not interested in growth for its own sake - a very rare thing in this world of endless business greed on a planet with limited resources.
He wants to "wow" people... now that's a worthwhile ambition. A true visionary. I salute him.

Yes, Nikon is a jealous god... 'Thou shall not use 3rd party batteries, Thou shall not use 3rd party lenses... etc, etc." That's fine, Nikon -- I will not use Nikon gear. Funny because the new Df looked really interesting. Now I've lost all interest.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

Nikon: button and dial-crazy. So, the answer is NO - it may be retro, but it ain't simplicity. Olympus did it right with the old film OM series - shutter speed and aperture on the lens mount and barrel = one-handed operation, leaving the other hand free for other controls and the shutter.

If you really want simplicity in a contemporary camera, the Sigma SD1 Merrill is the answer.

SigmaChrome: If you really want a quiet DSLR, get a Sigma SD1M. The shutter sound and mirror slap noise is as soft as a baby sitting down. Nikon and Canon sound like the Crash of Doom by comparison.

Ah... Mr Yeahbut (there is always a Mr Yeahbut) and you know this how exactly? There is usually quite a lot of light on a movie set. And you have tried shooting an SD1M in this situation, of course.
