The Battle of the 30s: Sigma 30mm f1.4 EX vs 30mm f1.4 ART Part 1

50mm (full frame equivalent) fixed focal lengths are counted among the lenses with the widest field of application. It comes as no surprise, then, that both 30mm f/1.4 Sigmas are repeatedly mentioned in threads focusing on purchase advice. Before the appearance of the 30mm ART, the selection was somewhat more transparent. You could either opt ...

Sigma 60mm f/2.8 Collection of Links: Reviews, Sample Images, Threads, Videos

According to some forum visitors, Sigma lenses for NEX and mFT are a by-product of the DP Merrill development. This may be conceivable for the 19mm f/2.8 and 30mm f/2.8, although the glass-elements are arranged differently. It appears less likely for the 60mm f/2.8 (said to be comparable with the 50mm f/2.8 of the DP3M), ...

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 ART Hands on!

You have read correctly! I had the opportunity to test Sigma’s fast APSC fixed focal length, the 30mm f/1.4 ART. It is too early to draw any conclusions, except that the new finish actually looks as valuable as initially seen on product images and also feels accordingly. Zeiss-like, if you ask me. The surface is ...

Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 Contemporary Link Collection: Reviews, Sample Images and Videos

It’s about time I did something for the community, especially for those who are interested in the new Sigma 17-70 “C”. It can indeed be time-consuming and tedious to google all the information on an only recently published piece of equipment on the market. So that Fotogenerell-visitors don’t need to do just that, I compiled ...

Whatever crosses my DPMs’ path

After my seemingly everlasting macro-phase, everything is back to normal again. I take photos of anything that crosses my DP2M’s or DP3M’s path. At times cats, at times cars, and at other times dainties straight from the grill. 🙂 By the way, this time I left the meat slightly longer in the pot when it ...

Review: Sigma DP3 Merrill

I have been using the Sigma DP3 Merrill for a month now, enough time to conceive an opinion on the camera. Admittedly, I didn’t use it as an all-purpose camera as I did with the DP2M (1, 2), but primarily for macro shots, which is why I cannot tell exactly how well it does as ...

Image Quality Comparison: Sigma DP2 Merrill vs DP3 Merrill (15 Megapixel Pictures)

A few weeks ago, one of my readers asked me to upload some DP3M-photos in full size (15MP). Instead of just following this one request, I took some brick wall photos with the DP3M as well as with the DP2M, and additionally uploaded the most interesting photos I took so far with both cameras in ...

Insects and Green Stuff with the DP3M

A few days ago, I got the request to upload some of the pictures I took with the Sigma DP3M in original size. As I recently only just photographed bugs and flowers, I don’t have any photos readily available to demonstrate the camera’s sharpness and the lens (middle and edge sharpness…) performance. As soon as ...

Macro, green and cars with the DP3M

Previous Saturday, the sun dared to come out for a few hours. I used the time for taking some macro shots with the DP3m. Sometimes it rained more, sometimes less. When at my wits’ end, people tend to come up with unusual ideas, at least that’s the case with me. Since I already liked the ...

Despite the rain I dared to venture out with the DP3m

Our dear sun took some time off, but the urge to go outside for a photo bout with my new toy was too strong. 🙂 As expected, no photogenic motives whatsoever came my way in such weather. Never mind, it was still fun. 🙂 You can view additional DP3m photos on my Pinterest account or Flickr set.
