Toni Salmonelli: I would really be tempted to buy one, if Sigma would release a canon EF-Mount version. I am wondering why that has'nt yet. There are so much EF lenses out there (same goes for Nikon) and Sigma knows the AF routines as third party lens supplier. I think Sigma could make more money that way, than hoping people are making the switch to the SD mount are solely relying on existing SD mount users. But that's just a guess.

Sigma's final CP+ announcement was the Mount Converter MC-11, which lets you attach Sigma's most recent lenses (in either Canon or Sigma mount) on full-frame or APS-C Sony E-mount bodies. The MC-11 adapter claims to support phase detection AF with adapted lenses, and enables the use of both camera and lens stabilization when present.

Toni Salmonelli: @dpreview team: Did I miss something or is there still now review of this camera?

Steady on Toni. It is not yet released.

unbelievable: Sigma Quattro: Great cameras, great lenses, great images let buy one...

Oh wait: there is the notorious Sigma Photo Pro Software barrier, specially designed by Sigma Engineers to prevent people from actually enjoying/using their beautiful equipment

(Maybe one day, they'll get it)

This is true but their jpgs are better and better. If they could find a way to seriously power up their software. Mind you Irident Developer does a reasonable job at processing RAW XF3 files and is quite a lot faster (especially at the editing phase where the SIgma software is glacial).

so half the reach of a P900 but way brighter so maybe offer $2000? Touch big and heavy for carry around though.

noflashplease: I really don't see a point to this crop circle lens, when the 85mm F/1.4 ART is on the way. Sorry, but the days of APS-C are coming to a close.

Not when you have just bought a very well priced SD1 off ebay. : )

Paul B Jones: Okay, a camera with a quality control problem that produces indistinguishable images from other cameras "destroys" said other cameras. Not DPR's finest headline moment.

Yes. Sensationalist headline.

In reply to:

gordzam: 600mm shots shot with the Canon G3 X clearly show a lot of heat distortion when viewed at full res that the Sony pics don't show. Are these shot deliberately much later in the day to degrade the perceived better quality of the Sony? Honestly, I can only spot a very slight advantage at full aperture of the Sony lens, which will not be visible when viewing the whole photo. All 3 cameras are on par, and very good, and I would not make a decision on image quality if I had to choose between these 3 cams.

"Are these shot deliberately much later in the day to degrade the perceived better quality of the Sony?" oh come on!

Well done to the person who videod this. Now what did Trey do?

I found the manual focus Samyang 14mm unusable as it did not hold the aperture open so you could see what you were doing when stopped down (as per other lenses). ie it was not an auto diaphragm lens. Is this?

Well 18-50 is an interesting range for a start. I think that is a Full Frame equivalent so quite wide indeed. The 24-85 seems more appealing as does the much larger 24-500 (but there must be optical compromises with that).

NeilBart: The Canon 80D looks a good package for both imaging and video. Check out the banding with the Nikon D7100 on these settings! Why didn't Nikon fix that with a firmware update?

There is this info. Sensor manufacturers:
Sony IMX-193-AQK D5300, D3300, D5500, D7200
Toshiba HEZ1 TOS-5105 D5200, D7100
Whatever it is the D7200 has a better sensor! : )

D7200 still far ahead but good to see an improvement.

Probably why they switched from the Toshiba sensor back to Sony for the D7200
