Thanks Keith. That definitely was a right place/right time event (I was fortunate to have my bag with me and the 10-20 on the camera as well). This disappeared within a couple minutes.
Every August I visit the same island on the Aegean. This has been going on for seventeen years now. This year I took my Sigma SD14 and 30mm/1.4 with me. Familiar location, new lens...
You seem to have a nice sharp copy. I see softness on the right side of the grapes, but those are probably just in the OOF range if you were using a large aperture. Nice compositions!
Thank you, Jim. You are right about the OOF range, I was shooting in the evening sun.

A few gorge shots with the Sigma DP2s. I actually like these images better than those I shot earlier with the Canon 5DMKII and L glass. That little Foveon sensor is impressive and if the SD1 is as good with 3x the output pixels I'll be tempted to give up the Canon body and modify the SD1 to EF mount.
Thank you, Carl. 30mm f/1.4 is indeed very sharp, probably one of the best Sigma has to offer for its DSLR models.
Your DP2s shots are among the best I've seen so far; you've got all the colors right.
What amazing detail you get from these 4MP... I have this printed 16x24 on the wall. The crane cables on the right are quite clear.

I thought I'd revive this thread with some Sigma SD15 shots taken in Chicago this weekend...
Impressive posts, Jim
I don't care what gear I have.
