Summary: good stuff maybe but no Raison d' etre...bec of dp1 merrill which is ALSO half size foveon sensor... ( or did i get the spec wrong !?!?! ) if sigma was going for spacious SLR body like this sd1 merrill, would have been MUCH BETTER engineering and common sense MARKETING to make it FULL SENSOR or even BIGGER than full sensor at this price, so it makes no sense, and no wonder it aint selling so hot... idiotic decision on sigma....shame, tsk tsk.
Excerpt: I have owned two of these cameras. The irst bought immediately they were released and the second only a week ago. The first camera was a shocker. Purple and green blotches in shadow, very poor exposure, uncertain focusing and unrealistic colors. I got rid of it but bought another only a week ago because the forums stated Sigma had sorted out the problems. That is not true. The camera is still a poor performer.
Cons: Greenpurple Blotches, Iffy Exposure, Iffy Focus, Innacuarate Color, S L O W
Summary: Meiner Meinung nach, kann es nicht sein, dass innerhalb eines Jahres eine scheinbar hochwertige Kamera, an über 5000€ an Wert verliert. Und aller Voraussicht nach bekommt man diese Kamera in ca 1 1/2 Jahren nur noch für unter 1000€. Qualitativ ist diese Sigma Kamera im Vergleich zu einer guten Nikon, Canon Kamera (Preis ca 1200€) vom Wert gleichzusetzen.
