I highly recommend this camera for the true professional.

Charles A. Faraci III, Amazon
11 July 2015
  • Summary: This is an excellent camera. Can I order an English instruction manual? Also I did not get the Sigma pro 5 software disk in the box as described in the order. After I get the software I can put the camera through its paces. I have followed the FOVEON X3 imaging chip since it was introduced.

I thought my D800E files were sharp, they are but pale versions of the files from the SD1 Merrill

GenesisOne29, Amazon

  • Summary: The Sigma SD1 Merrill is something else entirely: This is a machine that cannot conceivably be used as an all-around imaging device, a product that lacks many of the basic features we've come to expect from modern digital cameras. Need usable high-ISO images? Too bad..

Love this camera. Love the Foveon sensor

Greg Neidballa, Amazon
23 December 2013
  • Summary: A great price for the current top of the line Sigma camera. The Foveon sensor is unique to Sigma cameras. Take a look at the images produced and understand the strengths and limitations.

Fantastic Foveon Quality

Stateless, B&H Photo
17 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Up until the SD1 I primarily shot medium format film cameras for my personal work, and used a Sony A900 for commercial work. I do photography to make images, not to use cameras, so the image quality is my most important concern.

Great Photos, but NOT a 'Snapshot Camera' by any means!

William Wilgus, Amazon
9 April 2012
  • Summary: Disclosure: I own and use four Sigma DSLR camera models and lenses exlusively. No 'casual' photographer should consider Sigma cameras unless they're willing to take the time and effort to learn how to use them.

Image Quality second to none

Tom Rose, Amazon
9 April 2012
  • Summary: So far as I can tell, anyone that has actually used this camera loves it. The knockers seem to base their opinions on other people's reviews, or on sub-standard images that have been posted on the web and do not do justice to the camera's abilities.

All about the image quality

dogme "dudkin", Amazon
8 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to supplement my Canon system, because it can do certain things better than any other camera, although its range is much narrower than practically every other digital system. I love the quality of the Foveon image, its solidity and accuracy of colour and tone reminiscent of film.
