SigmaSigma at PMA 2007 : For Sigma, the latest Photokina has been an important event. Not only for them being a lens manufacturer but also a camera manufacturer. At that time Sigma introduced the Sigma SD14, a digital SLR camera based on the deviated Foveon X3 image sensor. Besides that Sigma introduced the DP1 digital compact camera that has been equipped with the Foveon image sensor. Not one of these cameras had reached the final stage then and the availability of the Sigma SD14 was even postponed. But at the PMA 2007 Sigma announced the availability of the Sigma SD14 digital SLR and the first results are starting to appear here and there on a users forum and on different web sites of the true Sigma lovers.

Sigma DP1 Digital Camera
Sigma maintain a very close bond with their users, something that is unique and something Sigma is praised for. The experiences and remarks of their users are being studied and if possible applied in order to improve the product, excellent teamwork! Besides the availability of the SD14, the Sigma DP1 is slowly but surely coming in sight. It is a very compact camera equipped with a Foveon image sensor. Mainly the serious photographer can't wait for the Sigma DP1 to finally get introduced. It is not a camera for the mass, but it will have to find its spot like before it Konica, Contax and Leica cameras used to do in the analogue era.

Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG lens
Besides these two incredibly special digital cameras, Sigma drew the attention by introducing a number of new lenses. The most remarkable one is the enormously impressive Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG lens. I could not resist taking the Sigma SD14 equipped with this lens in my hands to experience the feeling of setting out with such a tool. You are well aware of the 15 kilos of weight and you don't need a lot of fantasy to imagine what kind of tripod this lens requires. Very impressive!
