Just a quick question. Will SD9 AF lenses work in AF on an SD14? Also, does anyone know where I can get a new SD14 SA mount plate for this camera body? This body I have has a Leica R mount, making the camera almost useless for automatic stuff, and REALLY expensive (unnecessarily) to buy lenses for. I would like to put it back to the Sigma SA mount. Any help is MUCH appreciated...

On a general note, one advantage of shooting raw is that one can change the WB after the fact ... ... until today, that is. :-( Was going to respond to a comment about SD9 evening colors because I had made such a shot this very day. I opened it up in SPP 3.5.2 and noticed I had used Auto WB. I change it to Sunlight but it reverted to Auto right after my click! Anybody here experienced that? It certainly ain't right. I also tried other WBs - same result. I opened it in SPP 4.2 - same again. I...

As I understand from interviews with Kazuto Yamaki-san, his devotion to Sigma's camera line extends from a spiritual inheritance from his father, the founder of SIGMA. The L mount looks like it may bring Foveon cameras closer to a greater audience, and I thought I'd ask what your impressions were of the idea of naming one of the new L mount SD cameras after his father in honour of this dream. The 'LSD Michihiro'. There may be FF and APS-C lines, or high- and low-end lines, of course. Perhaps...

Hi, New sigma sd quattro owner here. My first digital camera was a sigma sd9 or 10 I do not remember properly, moved to fuji s5 and than to fuji xt10. I always liked the result I got from sigma but the camera could not cope with 2 active children. I am digressing now, sorry. Today I received my sd quattro with the 50 art lens, very impress with the sharpness of files but I still have to master the dynamic range  of this camera. First impression   very positive.  Now that the kids have become...

Hi, What is the sharpest lens, 17-50 2.8 type, for the SD15? I love the IQ from my DP1x and DP2x, which I am now using exclusively, but would love to get an SLR as well. Used to have an SD9 back in the day and really liked it. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks, Angus Use your head,Go with your heart.http://www.flickr.com/photos/gusmur2/http://www.pbase.com/gusmur

A long time ago, I had a problem with reds with a Sigma SD9 used to shoot watches under CFL lighting. Not that I seek assistance with that issue which is long gone. However, I did buy a 24-patch Macbeth color checker card to investigate that issue, which I resolved by selling the camera. A bit naive, I should have sold the card instead ;-) So, currently, I've been using the card to compare color rendition of my four Sigma cameras. On the basis of comparison, I've been able to ignore the...

I have a range of Sigma lenses going back to 2003. After having been on the Sigma bandwagon and acquiring each new camera release, I couldn't keep fighting the quality control issues. Question being…. if I purchase an SD1, will it work with older as in 2003 onward Sigma lenses, all EX+ lenses, or will I have to send the camera in to Sigma and have all the lenses configured to work with the camera? Not having followed the threads for quite awhile, am asking. Where I left off was the last time...

Hi mates, I'm currently a DP2m user as well as a Fuji X system user. I've been shooting pictures for over 1 year with different lenses but never tried shooting with a flash:-(. Therefore, I sincerely want to have some advice on flashes from you and any contribution will be appreciated;-). Well, based on the search in this forum and other websites, I had these following ideas in my mind: 1. Metz 20 C-2, which had been recommended by a lot of people in this forum. However it's not cheap in my...

For example: DP2 vs. DP2s? All my Sigma DSLR's are compatible with all my various converters. Therefore, my current philosophy does not include SD15, Merrill, Quattro. I am aware that the DPnX models have an AFE similar if not the same as SD15. So, not interested in those. Thinking of trading or selling the SD9 for a DP1s or DP2s model but first I need to know that, for example, FastStone Viewer will open a DP1s or DP2s file without color cast, etc. OT, but any comments about DP1s vs. DP2s...
