Sigma DP3 Quattro Link Collection: Reviews, Sample Images, Videos

Up until now only a few reviews of the Sigma DP3Q were published on the web, but since all the Quattros share the same inner workings and body, only the lens of the “3” represents an unknown quantity. Admittedly the DP3 Merrill has the same lens, its job on that camera, however, is to project ...

Review: Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art

“To buy or not to buy?”, that was the question when I was having to make a decision on whether I should order the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art or not. Arguments against buying were the facts that, one, portraits are not amongst my favourite motifs, and two, my needs for a shorter telephoto ...

Review: Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Art

The best thing about Sigma Art lenses, from a buyer’s and tester’s point of view, is that all are similarly well built and optically outstandingly good.

Exactly one month has passed since the first in-depth review of the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art appeared. Commonly, there are not a whole lot of reviews in such a short amount of time that would justify a post of collected links. But the 50mm Art is not a common lens. Unlike any other lens before, ...
