The button layout is good when you adapt and even manual focus works well, better than my Sony A7, even with the Sigma EVF which lacks detail but is quite usable. For sports or action it is a poor camera by today's standard but I don't shoot that much anymore if I do I have other cameras. Post processing is a little more work but worth the effort. A normal day shoot for me is between 50-75 images using a tripod at ISO 100 so slow and deliberate. If anyone else shoots this way I believe the camera is about perfect. Now if Sigma just come out with a great "A" series wide angle lens. Looking forward to seeing the 12-24mm "A" lens!

    You are right if you compare the SDq to a Sony but not if you compare to a Merrill; q is a step backwards and not forwards,

    I have both a dp2M and sdQ, I use to have a SD1M but sold it to get what I thought would be the ideal camera the Sony A7, I was wrong. I do love my Merrills but enjoy the operation of the sdQ and I am happy with the image quality, it is still better than the A7. I don't know if the new Quattros will ever be as good as the Merrills but I do believe it will get better in time.

    Fall Creek and Ithaca Falls. A few handheld shots with the sdQ +18-35 + Kolari Hot Mirror (- internal IR cut/dust shield). This setup really requires a tripod to avoid shake and DOF limitations. Most of these were shot in shutter priority mode.

    Re: Sigma sd Quattro Images

    I think that this was our last day of Indian Summer, with some dramatic changes coming this weekend so I took the opportunity to get out and take some snaps. Just received the Sigma 8-16 and this was my first outing with this lens on the sdQ. I had to re-install the internal hot mirror/dust shield because this lens does not take filters. I shot these using 3:2 format except for last one in 16:9 format and all auto WB. Processed raws through SPP 6.4 and exported TIFFS to LR where I applied only minor exposure adjustments and then exported through Piccure+ plugin for light sharpening before sending to Flickr as 50% jpegs (I really wish that Flickr would stop adding sharpening when doing re-sizing.). Click image for the 50% original exported to Flickr. I think that the 8-16 UW is a nice, older generation lens with good distortion and color aberration control.

    Nice colors, but was that mushroom really that blue or is it a result of light reflection and increasing saturation?

    It actually had a slight blue gray tint to it and I had a polarizing filter on the lens which helped with sky reflections.

    Re: Sigma sd Quattro Images

    ^^^^ Terry, your work ^^^^

    Definitely the most impressive work with an SD Quattro I've seen. I am particularly surprised that the EXIF on some captures show very small apertures, f11 and f16. On my DP01 the captures turn to mush above f8 and as it uses the same sensor (I believe) I'm surprised your photos are so sharp at these apertures.

    Anyway, an eye opener - and thanks for links to larger sizes which helps with the evaluation.

    Thank you, Louis. As you noted I have seen no issues with shooting at f16 with the 30mm kit lens. I need to try it with other lenses to see if I get similar results. I'm hoping Sigma comes out with a new wide angle prime soon. If not then I hear the 18-35mm "A" zoom is very good.
