    it displays time and aperture as numbers, but it doesnt reflect settings in the displayed image, going from say f4 to f8 doesnt make the image darker etc, this is not live view.
    My first digital compact was a Minolta F200 back in 2003 or so, and from this time all compacts offered real live view, just Sigma is to stupid to archive this.

    Oh, this is what you meant, okay. Yes, aperture value does not influence live view. Indeed you'll have to improvise, e.g. look at the exposure correction and estimate/judge ... luckily to me it's not a big issue. I wouldn't trust the image anyway and most often I'm fine with little corrections up or down. But yes, they could improve ... and to some people doing high or low key ... At least for not moving subjects one can do test shots, look at histograms, and so on.

    I can easily live with the kind of Live View the DPQ supports. However the 'extended' full Live View would have been nice.
    My Fuji X100 neither sports true Live View whereas my EM1 does.

    Notice the beautiful Bokeh beside awesome resolution and detail. Fantastic.

    Definitely a ISO 100 camera at pixel level.

    I blown away with the IQ. Nothing to complain about.
    Think the review deserves it's own topic.

    :-)

    DC Watch review is indeed the best so far. Yet there are things to complain about, line noise (look at the flower shot, JPEG version!), color loss in shadows still present as known from the Merrill, some color spots. But at least the RAW output seems quite good most often: less jaggies, less noise and more natural than the JPEGs.

    I agree as it looks one could do great things with the quattro. =)

    Perhaps OOC JPEGs are fine for a lot of people, but not for me ;-)

    There's no doubt incredible prints can be made out of these files. Imperfections as you mention is not a big issue for prints. And to a certain extend flaws can be corrected by proper PP.

    Ahh yes I see the poor OOC JPEG. I didn't even open those images to have a look. In camera engines are normally no blessing.
