Pros:spatial resolution, photographic approach to which it "forces", unique character
Cons:not for everyone, limited usage range for the less-navigated
Opinion:After almost 10 years of Canon I am gradually migrating from the reflex system to the mirrorless one and the Sigma immediately conquered me for 3 motvi: 1 the foveon sensor and more generally the yield to 100 iso 2 slow grafts and reflex batteries 3 solidity , singular appearance and build quality Bonus- the ability to easily remove the infrared filter to experience this type of photography I used this machine for still life and studio portraits and is not comparable to any ff on the market. photos of this quality you can see only with the medium format I also tried a little wedding and reportage and I have to say that it gets away but you see that it is not a machine designed for too dynamic use the real treat is to use it with m42 adapter for still life in the studio with vintage lenses... the sharpness that develops in combination with the 35 mm sgma art catapults you into another dimension!!!
Pros:Foveon sensor, great resolution and chromatic rendition in suitable shooting conditions, is a machine that forces you to think before shooting and allows you to devote the right time to search the composition, without being taken by the heat of having to force Take.
Cons:Foveon sensor, abnormal behavior when sunlight or a strong source of illumination enters directly into the frame (color patches and dominant green or magenta that appear randomly in the entire image): just angular slightly The lens and everything disappears... Even with all the possible activated, in the viewfinder there is no real correspondence with the final image, so you have to think of a period of learning and harmony with the use of the coupled lens/camera body in order to achieve results that, at that point, They become great. Optical Mount SA, virtually non-existent adapter rings to use lenses equipped with other attachments, with the only exclusion of the M42 mount. From
Opinion:I have inserted the Foveon sensor between the pros and cons of this mirrorless, because the particular constructive architecture of the sensor constitutes the best value and the worst defect of this machine, which I love unconditionally. It is a machine dedicated to those who are not in a hurry to shoot and escape, so forget about action or sports photography. If used according to its characteristics (in my opinion fantastic, once you understand), the sensor offers the best of the market in the yield of detail and colors. Not having, for constructive reasons, charge amplifier on the single photoreceptor, it is not possible to adjust the gain (forgetting to use the medium and high ISO), since raising the ISO would only serve to underexpose during the shooting for having to then regain in PP underexposure, resulting in an exponential increase in noise. Remember when you "pulled" films with analogue machines? The mechanism is the same, with due technological differences. If you are working at ISO 100 The sensor offers a truly exceptional yield and I say it as accustomed to using reflex and ML equipped with Bayer matrix sensors at very high pixel count. The yield of the files, especially in monochrome, is very high, at the level of the best achievements on the market. I bought the machine equipped with battery grip and, since it is equipped with sensor APS-H, I matched the new lens "Sigma 40mm f:1.4 Art DG HSM-SA Mount", which in my opinion is among the best lenses made by Sigma in the series Art. I collected the shots made with the Sigma Sd four H in this Flickr album: https://www.flickr.com/photos/henry62/albums/72157690414585203
Pros:Machine body quality, unrivaled jpeg (if not in the MF), ease of use, the right conditions made by the pro without compromise in quality, b / n comparable only to the leica monochrome.
Cons:Battery life, "iso" iso hold (color no more than 400 iso, in b / n even 1600 where it generates a pleasant grain), difficulty in finding optics and accessories.
Opinion:I recently bought this car body, aware (thanks to the few discussion forums) of the field of use. I decided to make it the only body, selling the previous kit (d300 + various optics). 100 bucks the breath. Every generated photo ranges from 65 mb to 500 that came out with the SFD option. Great yield up to 400, beyond becomes good for the web, but loses a lot in print. Slow processing program (for file size) needs a good pc behind it. Precise but slow autofocus (already budgeted, so I do not bother you). The only chance that made me lose my nose was during the first session; The battery life is embarrassing (I had to buy two spare parts in anticipation of a trip). For the rest, as previously estimated by the previous review, is not a system comparable to the Bayer technology flow. You acquire aware of what you can offer. And in its comfort zone, the yield is better than any current ff systemYou trade.
Pros:Superb file quality, great dynamic range, detail and amazing color. Rugged body and excellent finishes, simple menu and well-arranged controls. Very accurate electronic viewfinder.
Cons:Absolutely none for the kind of device. Not easy to find on the market.
Opinion:For those who already know and appreciate the Foveon sensor, this machine is its consecration. Turning it in his hands reveals an absolute sense of solidity and robustness. The detail you can record is something you've never seen before, and the file malleability is far bigger than that generated by the compact "DP" series and the old flagship Sigma Sd1 Merrill. For those who are accustomed to shooting in analogue to find work with this sensor will be a joy. The operating speed is lower than the various reflexes on the market but we are talking about a tough product comparison. I only had it for a few weeks and as soon as possible I will regain it, probably greeting the reflex system definitively. If you have the chance to test it, bring the file home, open it and you will not be back. RnProduced with MTrading warranty of 3 years if purchased in a physical store, you spend more but you sleep quietly.
