Summary: It's not a camera for everyone, but if you are looking for something different, here it is. the IQ is incredible, the Quattro line is an improved version of the Merrill line. I actually use this as my walk around camera and love everything it makes.
Summary: Superb image quality. Search SIGMA DP2 on Flickr for examples. Also see It's big brother the SIGMA DP2 Merrill's examples. Both cameras easily yield astounding professional results when controls are mastered.
Summary: This small nondescript black box is no good in low light. After taking a shot, you need to wait 15 seconds before you can chimp (but you can continue shooting). So you need to use it like you use a film camera loaded with a roll of Kodachrome.
Excerpt: I bought this camera due to a short price reduction. What reviewers say about this camera is true - It is quirky (slow and questionable from an ergonomic standpoint) and the software, which allows the editing of RAW files, isn't too good. That said, it is saved by the image quality.
Excerpt: Foveon sensors in general deliver quite distinctive output, and the Quattro is no exception. Colour rendition is better than the previous Merrill generation, rendering of detail is a little different.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Outstanding Image Quality, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I've realized, after reading reviews of each of the Sigma DP cameras and owning them all (DP1, DP2, DP1m, DP3m), that the negative reviews are mostly written by people who don't actually own the cameras.The earlier reviewers pretty much covered the pros and cons (in well written reviews), no need to...
Excerpt: Shoot mostly Landscape.Works great for that.If you use the Quattro within it's "operating window"it's hard to beat.The image quality is on a par with cameras like the A7r and D800 for a fraction of the price.
