Could not find a dedicated thread for the Sigma SD1, so here is the start of one. I hope it grows over time!

I have the SD1 and the 35/1.4 Art lens. As soon as I can, I'll make a RAW file and put it up for inspection.Has anyone seen any image samples taken with SD1 + 50/1.4 Art? I can't find anything even on Sigma's special websites. I'd like to check out some RAW samples and hear user opinions about this combination and whether it offers the clarity of DP3M @ f/2.8.
Marlina DZ,Darr, I'd appreciate if you can share a landscape shot at f/1.4 & f/2.8 to evaluate sharpness.
What's your impression of AF accuracy at f/1.4?
I ended up with 3 similar lenses and have been doing shoot-outs this week. Just test shots, nothing worth posting. With the higher resolution Merrill sensor, lens comparisons become more meaningful - compared to the SD9 where you can slap any old lens on and almost ignore the effects of diffraction!Great! :thumbup:
That [17-50mm EX DC OS HSM] lens may not rival IQ of DP primes, but more image samples in this thread won't hurt
I have no explanation as to why X3F Merrill files suffer from banding that much. It was a real problem visible in some random shots until Sigma introduced the latest version of SPP 5 that took care of banning very well, better than other plugins could.Any thoughts?
Sure Malina, this is the TIFF out of SPP 5.5.3, converted to JPEG for posting. LO res shot is full size.Ted, show us your final/processed image, please.
