LWW: It's encouraging that this has bought the naysayers out from under their rocks! The less undeveloped photographers get their feeble fingers on these the better. Then those of us than can utilise these cameras to their best, faults and all, with their stunning results will look.

Snobism? Let's try resultsism, while we're being weird. No one in their right mind would go through the pain of using Sigmas for any other reason. Do you use Leica by any chance?

OldnGray: It would appear that the detail level that film provided has now been finally equaled by digital. It is too bad that it has taken this long to finally get a camera that can provide the quality.

How long until the price shrinks to where everyone can get film equivalent digital output? I expect that it will be awhile before serious photographers will be able to afford such quality. Those that have the money, enjoy your new Hasselblad. When you are done playing with your new toy, give it to someone who can use it. Most of all, please don't let it sit on you closet shelf next to your old Hasselblad which is currently sitting there for the past 30 years or so.

One post wonder, for what? youngnstupid more likely.

Lord Lucan: Nevermind.
I wish if I can buy a SWC/M again and add a compact digital back same size as A12.

The files from my Quattro's are far better than my SWC903, it's why it lies in the cupboard.

historianx: Note to DPR Editors:

The I Own It/I Want it/I Had It tally is silly and juvenile. Drop it, for it serves no useful purpose whatsoever. 34 people had a camera that's not even been released yet?? Who dreams up this stuff?

Poor Grogan, pics of cats to offer. Little wonder buttons make you fulfilled

Mark Eberts: Yes, sure,
... whatever you say Sigma ...
If the files look as bad as the Sigma Quattro ... who needs this camera?
The only useable camera they ever produced was the Sd14 which I used professionally until 2011. At ISO 50 it was good enough. The Sd15 lacked in dynamic range. The SD1 ISO 100 was useless ...

Poor Eberts is lost, no pics or a gallery. Just a lost soul troll aimless and useless.

OlyPent: "51 MP." They added 1MP to one-up Canon which has the most to date. Tacky.

If 1MP is a judge of your IQ or IQ then you really don't get it.

Dear Vanitas, weird is good, hence the Sigma breed. And my worth is in my appreciative customers, and my satisfaction with what I achieve with the tools.

LWW: Hate 'shoot' as a photographic term. Descriptive of destroy, as against create.

‘Shooting’? Never. I go out looking. The word ‘shooting’ reminds me of going out with machine gun and a big bag of bullets trying to hit a target that you know is there, and hoping for the best. When I go out there is no preconceived plan.
I very rarely carry a camera in my hands and don't use neck straps. My cameras are always in a back pack and come out when it’s worth my effort to use one. The adventure and the unexpected is really what drives me as a sensitive soul.

gueleh: Dan Bracaglia obviously hasn't read your articles about equivalent f/-numbers...(?).
As always - the correct numbers are visible on the camera lens: F/1.4-2.8 / 8.8-26.4

This is the weirdest thread I've ever tried to read about taking photos!

PhotoKhan: Going through these wonderful, wonderful photos makes it easier to understand why MFT users have the constant self-doubting need to roam through FF and APS-C forums making inane claims.

Very nice, regardless of sensor size - precisely! or Yes, precisly - or not so much. One key stroke and you've made a fool of yourself @PhotoKhan.

Mister J: I come here for photography, not for a rehash of Apple-PC wars.

Message to supporters of either side - buy what you like, but please leave the carping for another day.

This site is never about photography, albeit help for some aspects of the craft. It's about gadgets and things.

fmian: Still.. doesn't seem to capture as much texture detail as an APS-c Sigma Quattro.
Next!

Back in the nineties I went MF with Mamaya 645's and my photography went backwards because it was so heavy and cumbersome. 5 years ago I went M43 and my photography went ahead with the lightness and versatility of the gear. No customer has ever questioned the IQ when they are preoccupied with image content and impact. Now with the Quattro's I just have the best of everything.
