Re: What is holding Sigma back with the new Merril(s)?

A camera with a very limited iso range and lack of video capability isn't competitive. It wouldn't make any difference.

High resolution sensors are making Foveon technology obsolete. You can buy an A7RII in quite affordable price, with better IQ at any ISO than SDQH. Of course moiré is problem even with high resolution bayer, so I can't argue that Foveon has sitll advantages in few cases.

However I still like DP series. I bought the A7III and sold all DP Merrills, but I can't part from my DP2Q. 400g light, small body, and I have some attraction to design. And it still owns 24MP Bayer at iso100 in some cases. I like the portability paired with high IQ. Thera are'nt huge competition, Ricoh GR3, Fuji X100T/V, Sony RX1R, Leica Q, for landscape DP series are still the best bang of buck.
