  • My answer to the first part of your question - the overall image quality of my SD1M and 35mm 1.4 is far superior to my DP2M.  The DP2M is a little sharper in the corners, but the colour I get from ...
  • The 645D image quality is superior in almost every way to the Sigma DP2M, however, the DP2M is lighter and more portable. But in terms of image quality, they are a long way apart.  I know, because ...
  • In the review in Luminous Landscape of the SD1 a couple of years ago - it was compared with the 645D. http://www.luminous-landscape.com/reviews/cameras/sigma_sd1_review.shtml Although the price has ...
  • SD1M body in Melbourne is currently AU$1249. https://sigmaphoto.com.au/cameras The new SD1Q, to have any chance of attracting buyers, should be no more that AU$1400 in my opinion. They should then ...
  • I will wait. I don't have a DPQ & will wait until SPP 6.1 - " until the release of SIGMA Photo Pro 6.1.0 which will support all models."
  • What you should be asking yourself is which is your preferred field of view - wide, standard, or slightly long.  All of the sigma DPM cameras have excellent lenses. The other difference between ...
  • Looking at the first 2 jpgs at the beginning of the thread, the one big difference i see that matters is the colour.  In the park area in the left side background the Q image renders the trees ...
  • I have a DP1M & DP2M and an SD1M with one zoom (8-16) & 3 primes 35 1.4, 50 2.8 & 70 2.8). I mostly use the SD1M, sometimes use the DP1M (because of its useful focal length), and never ever use the ...
  • I use this on a Sigma SD1 Merrill.  It took a while to figure out how to use it.  Early on, I would find blurry sections in the middle of the frame on exterior shots & could never figure out what ...
  • Replied in Medium Format.
    I bought a slightly used 645D with 5 lenses - FA35mm, the new 55mm, FA75mm, FA120mm & the 200FA lens.  The whole lot was cheaper than a new 800e with equivalent lenses. Best money I have ever ...
  • Created discussions 50 1.4 Price
    http://www.camerapro.com.au/sigma-50mm-f1-4-dg-hsm-art-lens-canon-mount-australian-stock.html Price in Australia is advertised at $898, so I imagine it will be available for low $800s. Seems like a ...
  • You could be right Hardy, but after two new lenses I gave up.  I ended up with the 35 1.4 & the 50 2.8 - both excellent.
  • 17-50mm Sigma lens is a hi risk purchase in my opinion.  I bought one exchanged it for another, and it was no better.  Fortunately the dealer took it back. I have an SD1M which I think is an ...
