acidic: Canada Post is a joke. US to Canada mail arrives faster than Canadian domestic. For Canadians close to the border who have time sensitive mail, it makes more sense for them to drive into the US and send their mail from a USPS post office. Go figure.

let's see
uspost to canada
how does it arrive in your mail box exactly?
does an american postal worker bring it?
or does canada post?
but they are hopeless & useless - so that can't be it.

what then - elves? pigeons?

go figure.

zsedcft: This thing should have 2 card slots. Most professionals will not buy this if they can't have in-camera backups, it is not worth the risk of losing client photos or even once-in-a-lifetime shots.

I can't even consider this camera because of that one omission and it is annoying. I'm sure that it is cramped inside the A7rii body, but they need to find space for a second card.

yea just like all pro film camreras used to have 2 rolls simultaneously exposed.

how many shots have you lost?

get over yourself

Marty4650: Sigma really has found their market niche.

Their cameras are designed for people who really value "being different" above all other considerations. It doesn't matter if they cost too much or perform too little as long as they are bizarre in some way.

No one can ever accuse Sigma of running with the herd. And the odds are, no one will ever be stealing their camera designs.

They probably should stick with what they do best.... making lenses, and leave grotesque camera designs for someone else.

image quality is what they are aboutandit has never been less expensive.
I suppose being flippant makes you cool - go Marty4650, go.

Valen305: Insightful interview, but the explanation for the odd design of the Quattro makes no sense whatsoever. How does that body resemble a dslr? ...wait, let me smoke some crack... oh, now I see it.

in reply to 0MitchAG -

didn't think you would get it.
oh well, never mind.

well - if you don't see the added stability of supporting the camera and lens with your left hand instead of pinching the body out in fornt of you nor the need for more stability because of the high resolving power of the camera, then I suppose you won't understand it either.
and will get blurry pictures as well but never mind.

you seem to be able to read and write -so is your problem too much crack or just a general lack of comprehension?

let me quote the article: "This camera has a super-high resolution, equivalent to 39 million pixels so we assumed that users will hold the camera like a DSLR, not like a compact camera so with the left hand gripping the lens and the right hand on the shutter. That’s where we got the idea."

see it now?

didn't think you would.
