  • I suggest you look at the Reid Reviews website for a comparison between the quattro and merrill sensor Sigmas.  It is a subscription only website, but is well worth the annual fee which is not a lot. ...
  • I really wish they would release an DP0M. 14mm wide would be excellent. I much prefer the Merrill IQ overall than the Quattro. edit: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/sigma-dp0-quattro/sigma-dp ...
  • Looking at the quality of the 2 published images from the new Canon - they are a bit underwhelming. I hope once it is released later this year, it is capable of the quality you get from a NIkon ...
  • I did.  I went through 2 new examples on my SD1M and returned them both.  Bad quality with the right hand side of the image being out of focus.  No comparison with the lenses on the DPM cameras, ...
  • I believe the SD1M is still an excellent camera to own.  Not sure how mauch they are where you buy them, here they are $1250AU, and the DPMs are $550AU. I have a pentax 645D as well as the SD1M ...
  • I do have an SD1M (see my equipment list)  I bought it within weeks of its release.  Point taken about the image you showed, but to me the IQ is a long way off what Merrill does at lower ISOs, and ...
  • Created discussions SD1M - update wish list
    I have a wish list for the next iteration of the SD1M. I suspect it will probably be a Quattro, which I have my doubts about, - (especially after seeing the comparison between Merrill and Quattro ...
  • 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 ...
