Image Quality second to none

Tom Rose, Amazon
2 December 2014
  • 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.

Specialised, but great at what it does

Tom, B&H Photo
15 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera to get ultimate image quality. It annoys me when people criticise it because it is only really usable up to 400 ASA (Anyone old enough to remember when we used Fuji Veliva - 50 ASA - without IS and still got sharp shots), or because it does not shoot video, or because it is slow...
  • Pros: Amazing Iq, Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Tough Professional Body, Weather sealing, Well Thought Out Controls
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Takes 8s To Write A File

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

GenesisOne29, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • 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..

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

William Wilgus, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • 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.

Incredible level of details

X3Man, B&H Photo
4 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Owning this camera for a year, now, I am very impressed with the level of details this camera can produce. At the price it is selling now, the IQ\price ratio is hard to beat. The IQ is up to the level of semi-pro cameras from the Canikon world.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO

Love this camera. Love the Foveon sensor

Greg Neidballa, Amazon
6 May 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Quiet
  • Cons: Small LCD Screen
