So the camerastore guys hated it - pretty much finding it unusable unless you have a tripod and time to spare between shots writing to the card and focus. Unanimously most people rave about the IQ ; I'm normally relatively skeptical of hype, but at ISO200-400 the files do look extraordinarily detailed with absolutely gorgeous tonal transitions. It looks to be particularly well suited to black and whites which is ironic in one way given that the sensors primary design / strength is to record all colours at each pixel. Then again, maybe it's not that surprising that it works well for B&W as you are capturing more accurate colour details so you would have more control in post for desaturating. For landscape or studio portraits where you can take your time, this may well be a nice second/third camera body to play with. In many ways it reminds me of the same design philosophy as something like a Leica Monochrom. Extremely specific in its purpose and pretty much useless for anything outside of that envelope. You buy into it knowing exactly what it can and cannot do. Also fully appreciating non-existant LR support and a horribly slow and clunky Raw development studio from Sigma. Has anybody been tempted/considering this. I'd be really interested in seeing some of your results --Tom.
