Pros: Foveon sensor exceptional micro contrast, collects details that a Bayer has difficulty recording, black white worthy of a monochrome

Cons: Color usable up to 100 ISO, in B/W 800, otherwise it is below current average, AF, recording speed, lens available only Sigma, SAF bayonet out of production, old digital viewfinder, need to use SPP

Opinion: If it were not for the sensor it would be to be thrown away. But since it has the Foveon sensor it is the machine I use the most. Of course if one earns the loaf with this it is hard to make marriages. But to photograph is an absolute pleasure knowing the limits. The black white is really valid, you can do without editing IR photos.

Pros: The Foveon sensor, the proprietary Sigma optics, a certain simplicity of use, excellent RAW and JPG files, RAW development system in the machine simple and quick

Cons: Outdated support technology, embarrassing autofocus, excessive weight, ridiculous battery life, the Foveon will never - it seems - FF

Opinion: I arrived at digital after many years of film (sorry but analog you can not hear) and I started with a super technological Z6_II which I am very happy. I took the Sigma attracted by the Foveon and the vulgate according to which the files of this sensor are close to the film. Now in all honesty I must say that this machine churns out very beautiful files, at least in my opinion. To get the results I want I have to do much less PP than with the Nikon but even with this in the end I get where I want. The limitations of this machine are all in the technology around the sensor. An embarrassing autofocus for slowness and sometimes unable to act in low-contrast conditions (sea sky with a bit of haze the really impossible scenario), icing on the cake a battery with a ridiculous duration. It is a camera for contemplative photography, art, medieval old towns, gardens, landscapes, relaxed street. I hope that sooner or later Sigma Corp will deny me and pull out an FF with a technology around it that lives up to the current expectations.

Pros: File quality, FOVEON sensor, contrast and microcontrast, sharpness, amazing BW, robust and durable construction, ergonomics.

Cons: Those who choose a Sigma with FOVEON sensor do not see that the

Opinion: After the MERRILL, I tried this room: Excellent! It allows me to reach at least 200 shots compared to the Merrill, with better viewfinder and handle, returning to the touch a feeling of solidity and robustness. I find it reliable and perfect for those who want to take pure photography. I don't think it's for everyone, especially for those looking for a lightning-fast AF, but after seeing the images that he's capable of churning out this sensor, I challenge anyone to do without it!

Pros: RAW FILES!!!! The somewhat peculiar and very modern shape, the material of the body, the 30mm 1.4 sigma in kit but like all those of the art series, the comfort of interchangeable lenses and of course the FOVEON. If you have never tried this sensor do so, if you love photography try it, the sigma adapter that allows you to use SA lenses on sony mirrorless

Cons: The fact that the SA attack is an end in itself, given that Sima has developed the L attack with the Leica etc, the cost of the new high (relative, if you have a thousand euros to spend do it with your eyes closed to keep as a second body), some write EVF and screen and can also stay there because it is very painful, but you pass it over quietly. Definitely the choice of proprietary software at the expense of a serious collaboration with Adobe with Lightroom

Opinion: I was born in the era of the beginning of digital and my first car as a child was a coolpix in the early 2000s, but I also shot with my dad's films and reflexes. I found it by the way looking for more on Subito.it, I did two days of in-depth searches in the various blogs to see if it was worth the thought try and in the end I decided that the only way to understand its features was to buy it. Taken on Amazon because of the convenience of the return and I kept it a week. I also have an A7iii, before I had a D7100, I tried hyper bright fixed optics, poor and cheap zooms, both nikon and sony, but it was all so aseptic. Yes ok fantastic photos, incredible file workability etc etc, but the photo had no character, it didn't convey an emotion, it was just an image with a subject or a landscape inside. I was basically looking for the picture for a long time like foveon does without knowing the Foveon. That's why I tell you you have to buy it, you have to try it and try to look for the photos. It doesn't make 50-photo-per-second bursts, it doesn't have a viewfinder that finds a bird flying two kilometers away like Sony, it doesn't recognize your face in a quarter of a second like the Canon R5, but the question you really have to ask yourself is: do I need all this? Do you take only birdlife, formula 1, children running in parks and other situations where the AF of mirrorless obviously becomes essential? Don't you ever take a picture to treat her after years and relive the moment? After you take 30 pictures of the cat in 4 seconds what do you have left? This camera makes you understand the time, makes you think about the value of things thanks to only 200 battery shots, makes it clear that 50 photos are not needed (not on all occasions obviously) but 1-2 shots taken well and that transmit emotions. Balance of white from mediumformed, to iso 100 take photos that you did not think possible, INCREDIBLE colors, RAW files are a painting not a simple photo, all possible color yields, highlights and incredible material sensation and all this for "only" 1000€ including lens f/1.4. Of course it's not all gold this machine and the problems are varied: 9 focus points and an AF that could certainly be at least at the minimum acceptable levels like a nikon d7100 (and if you used it you know that we are talking about a very normal APSC of 4-500€), an attack that was not SA but one that can be used with a larger optical fleet, the program to process RAW that ONLY on an i9-9900k processor is fluid (and I write that processor because I have it) on a last type i5 forget to process photos, the price as I said but that is very personal, if it was at 700€ body with optics it would be to buy with your eyes closed. I made it only for the price that for my pockets, for a second body machine, is to be considered high for an object that does only a few things but does them excellently, I will certainly take a Sigma DP2 Quattro as a second body that costs much less although with a fixed optics and much more transportable having the same sensor and characteristics. CONCLUSIONS: Try it, you will love it. But remember, don't look on this iso machine over 200, it's like asking to rate a monkey for its swimming skills

Pros: Image quality, construction, price, ease of use, No video, not a Bayer, jpeg already great

Cons: It's not a Bayer, totally different approach, basically an ML prototype with Reflex attachment.

Opinion: I write a couple of things after 3 years of use. Solid and well-built machine body, few things and those you need, you don't need the manual to use it. Particular design, too bad the hideous fixed extension tube to accommodate Reflex optics. Spectacular and unapproachable images for any Bayer. No one talks about it but jpegs are already excellent as well as exposure and BW, rarely makes mistakes and you really have to force it to do so. It is not a Bayer and cannot be used as such. 100 fixed iso, you can get to 400 in emergency but with a loss of quality, in Black and White you can reach up to 1600 with grain effect. Essential and slow but reliable AF compared to previous models, AFC does not exist. In 2017 (the year I bought it) there were problems with artifacts, probably an excessive intervention on the NR. Since 2018 the problems have been solved (I believe from FW1.08) and even the subsequent FW have made the machine excellent for file quality, the limits obviously remain such. Raw processing SW (X3F) is slow but acceptable and is the only one that makes the most of your files. They have implemented shortcuts such as DNG files and PS plug-ins to open X3F files but they are all pejorative. The battery consumption is high, I use the screen little, turn off the machine as soon as possible, tends to heat even in Stand-by. For overheating so many legends, I use the event machine, 90-100gb of material on 2 bodies. The symbol (temperature) appeared to me 3 times in 3 years. July 35 degrees. RiminiComix. It is not a machine for everyone, those who come from the film benefit, those born with digital and Bayer will be embarrassed by this machine. We need bright and obviously heavy optics. I've seen a lot of SDQs sold with old Sigma optics blaming SDQ. The low price did damage in this case. It is, however, a flagship and must be coupled accordingly. The SA attack is highly limiting. The machine could be improved with little, they could at least make a version 2 with L attachment. Body defects, front ring on the shutter button too hard, comes from previous models, flash sled attack that sometimes inexplicably loses contact with its flash and trigger. Horrible, unsynchronized shooting noise, sometimes 1/4000s shots and the shot is like shooting at 1/10s.
