Pros: Handling, intuitive menu, iso 100 shooting quality

Cons: body size, af speed, data save speed

Opinion: Over time I tried all tastes but in the end the m4/3 was the one that gave me the most satisfaction... at one point I was kidnapped by an online review and decided to look for one: I finally took a SDfour with the 30mm. What to say, in its particular form, it is very attractive! Really high handling and a feeling of very high solidity. The menu flows quickly, few and essential items... some customization and you are immediately ready to shoot. Strictly iso 100 the Foveon sensor is the best of itself; However, it requires a more accurate study of the composition in order to make good use of the light. Everything travels more slowly, the af is slow but very precise... saving the photo also takes a few more moments but, it is a compromise that must be accepted. For now I have only done a few test shots so I reserve in updating the review also because the beauty comes when you print!

Pros: Colors and image cleanup

Cons: Slow focus, insufficient crosshair resolution

Opinion: I bought a Sigma SD Quattro because it allows instant replication of the optical image and observation of this replica with an eye isolated from the environment (1) and I bought it because it is equipped with a Foveon sensor, which offers the possibility of a recording high-quality electronics thanks to its unique design (2). I've been working with the device since it was launched in 2017 and I have to say that the mirror replica doesn't have enough resolution to focus the lens with the naked eye. Focus is only possible by activating autofocus that works well but very slowly. Momentary capture of the image is therefore difficult. As for the second reason why I purchased the Sigma SD Quattro, I can say that the sensor is really outstanding. When working at 100 ISOs, the sensor is able to take better advantage of the quality of the lens, especially in terms of detailed resolution. When set to a higher sensitivity, the recording quality of the Foveon Quattro sensor is similar to that of Bayer's sensors, which easily exceed its foveon rival with sensitivity above 400 ISOs. The Sigma SD Quattro was designed and built as a cul-de-sac. It only allows the use of Sigma SA lenses originally designed for the sigma SD1 Merrill corporate DSLR (2012). For Sigma SD1 Merrill, many high-quality corporate optics with an SA-specific bayonet graft have been left, but there will be no new ones. The SA attack has been abandoned and the imminent successor of the Sigma SD Quattro with the size of the FF sensor will already be equipped with a Leica attack.

Pros: Crazy image quality, pleasant to handle thanks to the body entirely in magnesium and its robustness, excellent display, dust filter that avoids dirtying the sensor with dust or other

Cons: it's not for all kinds of photography although not entirely to rule out the attempt

Opinion: Just taken past by canon 7d and fuji xt1, the quality jump is already felt just seeing it. Ok! it's very slow but as soon as you take a shot the monstrous quality that comes out of you pays off all the time waiting for it. you don't need to say much, in my opinion, (personally speaking) there is no apsc comparable to quality/price. super recommended for those who like to take pictures without hurry!! Ps. I edit the post after a year of use, what I'm doing with this mirrorless is absolutely crazy, carried everywhere and still looks new, I repeat how crazy the construction of this room is!! to this day I've paired it with a 50 f1.8 old and a sigma 100-300 f4, lens not at all suitable for the camera but that gave crazy shots, I have to say that coupled to the 100-300 f4 exceeds 2kg and becomes challenging, and with focus peaking you can focus even where the camera fails, because there is to say that if you do not use the art lenses is not guaranteed the correct operation even if so far I have been able to turn the focus only once. I confirm the amazingness of this camera that now is also affordable for everyone.

Pros: well-built machine body,100 iso image quality,shoot raw,jpeg and dng,big buttons,simple menu,great display

Cons: absolute slowness in writing,slow autofocus,bad yield over 200 iso,green flare in backlight,af continuous non-existent,annoying delay in refresh of the viewfinder,battery life,software for development raw very slow,buttons too soft and ghiere too Hard

Opinion: a machine to be used only for static subjects, with low iso and cavalletto.la image quality in controlled situations is fabulous,I had 3 digital medium-formed machines with 36x48 sensor, the results are comparable to these, as long as using serious targets art, with older ones is not guaranteed the proper functioning of the autofocus.beautiful colors, and white balancing in automatic very fedele.il body machine is solid,although the design very questionable. very defined and bright rear display, alongside which there is a smaller display indicating the settings of the machine.imenu is very simple and easy to imparare.la battery life is scarsa.il the viewfinder is large with well-read characters, although although slow in refresh, also between takes it turns all black and an hourglass appears.

Pros: File, Raw directly in BN, robustness, intuitive use, not exaggerated price....

Cons: Slowness, improbable AF, weight and clutter, zero functionalwill additional, heavy and bulky optics, difficult availability for both the used and the new... raw files managed only by the owner SW, which is not that great.... Indeed.

Opinion: I am a user of M43, and eager for novelty I decided to try qs Machine that so new is not... At first I was scared, it seemed huge (compared to my M43) and very heavy, then the heaviness fell back to normal, but the stain is very cumbersome considering then that I used it with a 30mm... The menu is very simple and intuitive, in 20 minutes (without reading any manual) you master the medium perfectly, all this intuitiveness at the end you pay in extreme poverty at the level of settings and customizations... but the real sore notes I found in the AF and in the general slowness of the machine, really impossible even for a machine of 2016! The AF is bad, the facial recognition is unusable and the AF points are only 9, all this made me return to the good and old recomposition to be able to get something decent.... all this combined with the fact that it is a machine practically nowhere to be found, both on the new and on the used... last sore note the management of raw files(3xf) that are read only by the Sigma Software, which for a years-old Lightroom is truly impossible... probably with a frequent use everything improves, but at first impact you are baffled.... But all this is mitigated when you go home and open the files on your computer, show.... The files are beautiful, especially the RAW directly in BN: fabulous! To get the same results with FF and M43 I have to make minimal one step in Lr and one with SilverEfex, here download the File and it is already ready... Finished! Beautiful... even in colors are very beautiful and the Wb is really great... all this as long as you do not exceed 800iso (at least with color)! In conclusion, in my opinion it is a machine that requires several compromises, if one is willing to accept them all, the results will not disappoint him, otherwise better to move on! It's a shame, however, that qs sensor is not developed properly, in my opinion with a couple of extra stops of iso sensitivity and a machine body adapted to the current ML, could really be the ultimate camera.... I dream of seeing a Simil-Foveon as the next M43 sensor... Meanwhile we wait for the next Foveon FF even if for costs and clutter will not be available to everyone... greetings Stephen!
