Postby popo » Mon Nov 26, 2012 5:56 pm ... entres.htm

Fed up of the pointless arguments of if the Sigma foveon is good or bad in someone else's test conditions? Why not try it first hand, as they're loaning them out free of charge for a few days from selected stores.

I've tried their cameras before... it was just a really different feeling, was kinda of odd to use, would be nicer if they had a top LCD screen as well

the sensor aint bad but would have been nice if they made a Full Frame for their High Resolution when they charge at such a high price...

but I've always considered most stuff from Sigma to be "crap", from my previous experiences of their lens performance.
