Thanks for posting this review so quickly after the camera's introduction.The funny thing with this camera that I noticed is, that raw files from ISO400 onward look much sharper than those shot with lower ISOs … still rubbing my eyes.
wildbild: I was really hoping for this next generation of sigma cameras to hit the shelf until I saw these first image samples today .. magenta and green blotchy crap. Oh boy did they blow this!I better get myself 5dmkii i think …
just have a look at this:http://www.sigma-global.com/en/cameras/dp-series/gallery/

i don't get why sigma's engineers think theese cameras are operated hand held. the should have a second tripod mount where the sd-card door is..
Given the fact that they are no professional photo agency I think 70—90% would be an appropriate share »that brings dignity to the photographer«.
it's not a trick—it's a phony
those snaps only prove you need really good glass for 24Mpix
The Lytro is not a consumer product.It is still this great technology that hasn't found it's purpose, yet.
DenWil: I will be interested to see if a FF sensor with the same pixel density is forthcoming.
such a sensor would be really stupid. imagine a 40+ MPixel sensor no landscape photographer could use because of defraction is starting at f6.3
Thank god it's not 24 mpixel! Defraction would have been noticable from f8 on..
They shouldn't have done this. To my eyes the images do not look any sharper but certainly show a whole lot more moiré.
peevee1: It loses a stop to Pana 20/1.7 and Samsung 30/2.0, yet priced higher. Bad value.
the price is outrageous! the canon 40mm 2.8 is 179 EUR! and that is FF
dharma108: Hmmm...a gold award for a $1200 DLSR that shooters of sports/action and/or wild life--as in birds of flight, etc--can not realistically shoot in raw mode because of the buffer limitations?
Something does not compute for me here. The buffer limitations is a total deal breaker for me. Should it now be known that the 7100 is just for still photography?
I forgot to tell you: 6 frames only can be really annoying!
My Canon 10D from 2003 buffers 6 frames in RAW. But hey.
mike kobal: thanks to the dpreview team for another excellent review! Looks like a killer APSC shooter, too bad about the terrible raw buffer (: I will patiently wait for the D900E with this sensor, ~54mp, rip medium format
Funny idea — a 54mp FFcamera would have defraction starting at f6.3. That would make all your f16 Landscapes look as soft as 70ies softp°rn. Even with the big proud capital E.
And don't forget to buy a new computer first capable of handling the huge files ; )
resolutionwise there is not much coming on top. what a nice excuse for buying a medium format system!e.g. 24mm f1.4 D3s 10p-mpixD3x 16p-mpixD800 17p-mpix
vodanh1982: What is the different between this and tilt & shift the camera?
this is a lens. not a technical camera. that's the difference
IrishhAndy: A real photographer would have defaulted on the bills.
in what world are you living in. the economic crisis is real!
blabla. sorry to say that: but this is just BS. I had once as well to sell my camera to pay the rent. and believe me: you better do.
