Excerpt: Astonishing image quality from a £300 pound camera! Not designed for low light and providing you set the Iso at 320-400 the shutter speed will stay fast enough to compenasate for the lack of image stabilisation.
Summary: Fantastic image acutance in good light in raw. Also great for black and white even at high iso thanks to the blue channel which is very clean of noise. Works great with the Konica Minolta CL49-200 close-up lens for near macro work. Now most of my shots are keepers. Thank you Sigma and Foveon.
Summary: I use Nikon D5100 and Nikon D800E with few f/1.2 and f/1.4 G. Nikon's and Sigma's sharpest Prime Lens, but I prefer the photos from this Sigma when shot out door, especially still life and landscapes.
Summary: I love its phenomenal image quality light years ahead of everything else. it is a king of all kings. I hate its retarded impotent deign. Where is your pride and ego, Sigma? Hire the best designers and electronics engineers in the world and make earth shattering killing compact camera - 1/2" thin...
Excerpt: Much has been written about this enigma of a camera. Many have criticised its slowness and lack of High ISO performance. That was when the camera was first released. The latest edition of the Sigma RAW conversion software version 6.03 seems to address all the noise issues.
I actually use this as my walk around camera and love everything it makes

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: Camera Body and Screen First thing that strikes you is this is a small dense camera. It is beautifully built and feels like a step up from cameras of a similar size such as the Panasonic GF1. It's all metal besides the controls and lens casing, and feels solid and cool to the touch.
