Move on from Foveon
5

After more than 10 years with different Sigma cameras (DP1, DP2m, DP1m, SDQ, DP2Q, DP3m) I decided to move.

I have also Ricoh GR3, very comparable to DP1m after some PP. however never able accomplish to recreate Merrill's rendering, still I find more pleasant for wider purposes. This made the first intention to move higher MP bayer sensor based option without AA filter.

28mm is great point-and shoot FOV, my favourite still DP2's 45mm. I made a bold decision, just purchased an EF mount Voigtlander 40 1.2 barely used with a good deal. I'm selling my current Sigmas (DP1M, DP2M, DP2Q), except DP3M because it is the sharpest camera ever made and never able leave completely X3 I think. I use the fund to purchase A7RII or perhaps A7RIII body for CV40. I'm looking forward how will compare my new gear to older Foveon, also it is a quite different beast with the extreme wide aperture. I want to try more "analogue", MF challenging option. I feel 10 years with a computer like Sigma cameras with almost perfect edge-to edge sharpness was a long journey, and I just need something very different.
