All interesting stuff. But until Sigma improves their processing software or Adobe supports the dp's in Camera Raw, I'm not going to meme the jump. Pity. I've seen some great stuff from Sigma sensors.
I used the EVF on a 100II and it stayed in place nicely.
I cut my teeth back in the day with a 135mm Vivitar on various Minolta bodies. Did lots of portraits and concert work. Anybody who says that this focal length (equivalent) is not very useful.... Well, they should try it first.
...and I'm looking forward to that test!
I agree that it ticks a lot of boxes, just not the ones that matter to me - an ACCURATE optical viewfinder and a large enough aperture in the 85 - 105 mm equivalent focal range for soft background portraits.
