Sigma Drops Price On New DP2 Quattro

By Anthony Thurston on September 29th 2014

Sigma just announced their latest version of the Quattro series of DP camera, the DP1, during Photokina. Their other Quattro series camera, the DP2, which features a 35mm fixed lens, has seen a nice price drop as a result.

The DP2 has received great reviews for its image quality and performance, while always being a great conversation starter with its unique design and style. Featuring Sigma’s latest Foveon technology, the Quattro series of DP cameras offers superb image quality and resolution to match.

    Have they created an intercangeable lens version of this new body design yet? I’d really love to see what they can do with a Sony A6000 / Fuji X-T1 competitor along these lines… It might not hold up against those other two in low-light, but it’d be gorgeous for landscapes and nature and such!

      Nope, and im not sure if they will. I mean they are expected to put this new tech into their next DSLR, which will obviously have interchangeable lenses. But I don’t think they have plans to make a Quatrro styled ILC.

    I think it looks brilliant . As far performance when it gets it right the pic are almost surreal but it will get it wrong is most situations. As a tool it would be the possum fur paint brush that only makes thickish-thinish strokes well when the paint is 40 degrees and tilted to the east. I want a reason to buy this camera so badly.

    As much as I like their lenses I can’t get past the aesthetics of this camera. Taking nothing away from it’s performance which I can’t speak to.

      Yeah, I like what they were going for in making it unique, but I think in this case they may have gone a little too far.
