Thx Bensonga ...from one car photographer to another ..controlling reflections, flares and color distortions become the most challenging ....love a partially cloudy day which we get once in a while here in vegas

Picked up my DP3 for some shooting last week. New year, old camera! But still lovely results. I have some black and white shots to post later this week.

First, a color image. I shot this same scene on film last year. Different conditions and slightly different framing, so they're not directly comparable, but I thought it would be fun to share the results nonetheless. The film image was shot using a 150mm lens on 56mm x 56mm film, whereas the Sigma version is a 50mm lens on a 24mm x 16mm sensor. With the Sigma file cropped to 16mm square, the field of view is slightly wider on the film image.

Sigma is demonstrating some horse power. Just imagine a 33X44 or larger size fovnon.

I've stitched many panoramas from my DP3 before, to an equivalent size of up to 46mm on the long side. The results are always amazing to see!

Like many others, I'm eagerly awaiting more news of the full frame foveon (this year?!?), and potential new DP cameras. Personally, I've always mainly appreciated the size:quality ratio of Sigma's DP series, so I hope they don't lose sight of that as they bump up the sensor size. The fp got a lot of buzz for being so compact and light--take note, Sigma! I already have a larger camera, my Sony A7rII, that travels with me most of the time and offers a well-rounded experience (AF, high ISO, video) and just as good IQ.

Here are a few more shots from the DP3 last week, converted to B&W:
