Hi, When you MF on the SD1M you hear a beep when  Focus is achieved. Is there any way to hear a beep on the SDQ when you achieve correct nanual focus? Thank you all, Mike P

I got this spotting scope to do some spotting (duh), but also to do some moon shots at a focal length that would fit nicely in an asp-c FOV. My initial moon shot was terrible, so I got a more robust ball head and took comparison pix on the same night, using the C-5 with a Pentax K-70, and then my earlier gear (Sigma SD1M and Sigma 15-600 mm (c) lens @ 600 mm), The combo of more than double the FL, and higher pixel density on teh K-70 means that I get 3x the number of pixels across the Moon....

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. Having a little bit of an issue, it is very difficult to find a good quality screen protector, and there is almost none out there for DP2 Merrill, they are either from China which will take a long time to come, or brands I never heard of. I found a JJC screen protector for SD1 Merrill and was wondering if the screen for both camera is the same size? According to their spec, they are, but still unsure about the size / aspect ratio. Can someone here please...

Hello folks,it is some years ago (3-4) that I asked here in the forum the same: A recommendation for really good batteries for my good old SD1 M. At that time I was adviced to try Wasabi batteries and charger, and I ordered two. But now the charger changes to green light after e few minutes, pretending that the accu has been loaded. But the camera says it isn't. The old original Sigma accus are still holding more capacity. Therefore I'm seeking your advice. I'm looking for good quality, but...

Read a few reviews and I use DP Merrills for some of my images. Can one use Canon or Nikon auto focus lenses on the SD1Merrill body? Or, Canon FD mount lenses and/or Nikon manual focus lenses? Thanks.

hiya people, I am not gonna unwind the personal circumstances but I am thinking of selling my gear. Unfortunately, I will not be able (if ever) to use my great SD (or any other camera) that I only bought recently. It is time so say goodbey. So my question is of a informativ nature: Is there any interest in my Complete SD1M with kit 17-50 mm f2,8 and 70 mm f2,8 makro and 30 mm f1,4 ART? I am allready selling the 30 mm lens. I didn’t use it. All except for the 70 mm is still withing European...

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I am going to purchase the Sigma SD1 Merrill today, and I also saw SD Quattro H going for slightly more. I am wondering given the chance that you can afford one of the either camera, which one would you go for? SD1 Merrill or SD Quattro H? Let's share our perspective and reasons behind it. For me: I'd go for Sigma SD1 Merrill. Merrill quality impresses me more than Quattro, and it supports all the sigma lenses incl. old ones which ones are not guaranteed to...

Hello everyone, Hope you are all well and having a great day. I am thinking of getting a new Art prime lens for SD1M, maybe 85mm or 135mm or maybe the 50-100mm F1.8 zoom. I am just wondering if there is any compatibility issue that I should know about before I purchase. Many thanks for sharing your experience with me. --http://www.mf-photography.com

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I am thinking of buying a Sigma SD1 Merrill and sell my DP2 Merrill. I wanted to know what is the max capacity CF card it will support. I have some 256GB Extreme Pro CF that I use with my D810 but not sure if SD1M will take such large capacity cards. Also will the card speed matter? Many thanks everyone, much appreciated. --http://www.mf-photography.com
