Re: I am one who has never purchased a Sigma

Hi Rich, Welcome to the Sigma forum. This was my description from my post high up on this thread


"Foveonish" image to me is crisp detail, clear sharp edges, perhaps nice clouds which stand out in the sky in an almost "3D" effect.


There's can be other factors to the look too, sure, but fine detail is key in my opinion, as well as good micro-contrast and sharp edges. For landscape people (as I think of myself) fine detail capture with the Sigma cameras results pretty much consistently and easily in nice clear detail of foliage, grass, trees, rather than what I've called "green mush."

I can post process my Canon 5DII photos usually to look like my Sigma/Foveon photos..  but I think it takes a lot more work in post processing than with the Sigma cameras.

I have examples printed as 11x19 in which the older Foveon sensor yields detail like the 5DII. The newer Merrill sensor (as in my DP2Merrill) yields greater detail than that older non_Merrill sensor.

Best regards, Sandy (archival) (current)
