Sigma is best known for its wide line of lenses, but the company has also produced a series of film and digital SLRs. Now, it has taken the big sensor from its latest D-SLR and put it into a compact digital camera body with a lens designed specifically for the sensor. The compact size and D-SLR image quality make this a great camera when you want to travel very light.

    It difficult to praise Sigma cameras sufficiently for their quality and imagery. I used to have Leica and worked extensively with 4*5, and, even that legendary quality it dwarfed by Sigma equipment. I am a ???fan?۝ not without reason. They do have a better idea, and once you understand the technology the results are not surprising. A pixel is not just a pixel! It depends not just on the processing, but it?۪s source as well. Try it; you?۪ll like it!
