Coming soon, to steal a job near you.

Their only real consumer product they have is DSLR cameras, the rest is industrial and low-selling imaging stuff. No office printers, no high end printers, no dedicated video cameras, no decent mirrorless. They better step up.

Cool stuff, cool stuff. What about a review of the Sigma SD Quattro H?

MrBrightSide: You guys are missing a huge opportunity by not mounting this lens on a Merrill....who knows how the elves in the Sigma lab have synergized the interaction between their amazing foveon sensor and the wonderousness of this lens? Who knows? Nobody, that's who because no other review site has the courage to dare try such a combo. Go for it!

[triggered] It's a collector's item!!

Waiting for someone to say that the Sigma doesn't have "character".

Look at that tender picture of Sarah Palin on the plane, almost make her look sane. This girl is good!

Darn, trying to get away from all the online political debates seems impossible these days. I welcomed that DPR did not allow comments on the Pete Souza pictures, maybe they should do the same here.

What the hell, I might as well jump in. Nothing to lose anymore!

Well If you must know, I'm expected to land in Kenya later today to hunt a Giraffe.

I think this is a good thing. I don't see why an older technology like film needs to die completely, Film and digital could happily coexist, even if the first would be more of a niche segment. Use whatever tool makes you happy.

Thanks! Funny that they aim to help capturing those visuals and then release a vid with a couple of static toys on a table.

WastingTime: Most likely a PROFESSIONAL wedding photographer owns either a Canon or a Nikon full frame system. That's just the truth. Even better if they have some MF gear, but that's already a minority.

Honestly it doesn't sound like a bad advice to check the photographer's gear. Granted, results can still be terrible, but chances are that he's better than the guy that only owns a Fuji X100.

I love the new tech being implemented in new cameras, but some older tech stuff just works dang fine.

@T3, I don't know if the article is biased towards FF, but I assure you that I am. However feel free to show me any APS-C sensor that can outperform the Sony sensor on the Pentax K1 and I might change my mind.

Btw, I also use APS-C cameras as backups, and they are great, but not better than the FF one

Definitely no one uses "Cannon", but they changed the original article, so now I don't know if bad spelling is on them or DPR.

Stand down the pitchforks and torches, my lovely angry mob! allow me to explain this sorcery.

@HowaboutRAW I did not mean that photographers with MF gear are necessarily better than the ones who don't own MF gear. However, given the high price tag of MF gear, I'm assuming that the guy with MF gear is good enough that he was able to afford such gear with what he earns doing weddings, so he must not suck at it.

@K E Hoffman You are right, those are the right questions to ask. However, you would agree that even if asking what equipment the photographer uses is not in the client's area of expertise, still, if you ask, most likely (definitely not all) own Canikon gear.

@ T3 I though everyone would be smart enough to understand that I was referring to current-models-yet-older DSLRs tech VS mirrorless and high end point and shoots with newer tech. Most did understand, you didn't.

John Spurs: A friend of mine who is a wedding photographer showed me a shot he had taken recently of a bridegroom and best man standing next to a Ferrari outside a cathedral. The car had been hired for just half an hour and the wedding took place at a little church a few miles away.

I think it's lovely that Sigma keeps doing cameras, if only because they have fun doing it. Such a tiny niche, and yet they have a bunch of little cameras out there for their fans. RESPECT!

cosinaphile: why didn't they make the flange shorter with a sturdy adapter with electronics .... there are 100,s of thousands of users all over the world who have lens collections that could be used in a legacy fashion but the depth here is like an slr
it reminds me of the pentax mirrorless debacle with the long flange and no vf a few years ago the k-01.... mark newmans regret..... it could have been something with a short flange distance and a corner evf ....

This sensor does not agree with light hitting in acute angles, therefore they are forced to keep the flange distance long.

Sonyshine: Do people still use Flickr?

I am surprised after years of Yahoo mis-management that it is still going. I left it years ago.

I'm not surprised smartphones dominate. That is how the vast majority of people take and share their photographs.

I think Flickr continues to be a great platform, with a large user base. Sure it's not Instagram, but hey, at least you don't have to place stars on woman nipples.

I find it more "real" whatever that might be.
