Anyone using the 17-70 mm 2.8/4 Contemporary on either the sd Quattro or the SD1 Merrill, how does it compare, optically, with any of the Art lenses. Would it be a useful and good enough lens to keep to use on the sd Quattro.? S

Why not build the camera with an extension of the body structure below the lens mount protrusion, to be flush with the tripod mount, to provide a surer, more rigid, and less damage-prone union with the tripod ? I notice, for instance, that the SD1M and the Nikon D500 do this (tho half-heartedly).

I've been tasked with "improving" the AF performance of our SD1m cameras. Does the AF Micro Adjustment in the camera actually improve results? If I go through and make AF Micro Adjustment settings for all our lenses at home, do I need to do anything else while we're out shooting?I found the "Dot-Tune" method, and I think I can adjust it for the SD1m's lack of Live View. Is this good, or is there a better method to calibrate the AF?Side note: I'm really disappointed that Sigma never introduced...

Woe! I switched on my SD1M and the only response I got in the viewfinder was a "Btry" light. I changed batteries and went on shooting. Trouble is, I ended up with the default date and time - somewhere in 2011 :-( Can this be corrected for the shots I took before realising and resetting the date and time? It would involve changing EXIF, I suppose. Ta. atom14.

SD1M DP2Q Problem was WB setting gone to "Auto (Lighting Source Priority) : Set White Balance with the atmosphere of the place leaving the lighting source. (only dp Quattro series and sd Quattro). I gives wierd results, and good ones. Must know what one is doing. Anyway the shots with SD1M and SD2Q at last fine.

Hi All. By the end of this month I am to visit Hungary and shoot there wedding reception. I am going to take one of my Sigma cameras with 17-50/2.8OS, but cannot decide SD15 or SD1M. Maybe some of you could tell me, which camera would be better in this case not to miss a thing. Which lens from my gear list would you recommend as a second one: 50/1,4 for portraits, 70-200/2.8OS as a long range gun or anything else? Take into account the importance of the event. Don't want to carry heavy load...

Hi I have a Nikon D5300 which I use for street photography. I would also like to do some very ART style city scapes / streetscapes in an art print fashion. I have read about and seen examples of the Foveon sensors amazing almost med / large format 3-d like picture quality, tonal gradations and colour rendition etc and am quite excited that the SD1 Merrill paired with my Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM lens might be an affordable option for me to get that medium format look - at low ISO and in...

Hi Everyone: I have been using the Sigma DC 17-70mm 1:2.8-4.5 zoom for several years now. I have an SD15. I recently had the opportunity to shoot a gypsy encampment in India. If I can't print my images sharply at 11X17 I don't consider an image successful. I know it is silly, but that is my craziness. In order to get that level of sharpness, I had to push the images a bit in post-processing. The pictures were taken at ISO400 and all were in the shade. Although I am fairly happy with the...

I am looking to try my hand out with a Leica lens on my Nikon and Sigma cameras. I was wondering if you could make a recommendation for a 35-50mm lens I could use on Nikon Mount cameras. I have a Sigma SD1M with a Nikon mount and a D810.  Suggestions? Obviously I will be modifying this lens with a Nikon mount, so I don't want to break the bank.
