Sigma SD Quattro pricing

Have you read the announced pricing of the Sigma SD Quattro? If you can believe Dpreview it would be at $799 for the body alone!

Now I had said to myself I would not get this at $2000 or whatever idiot price they would ask like they did when the DPxm and SD1m came out. But this? It is completely reasonable! I might even get one...

Can someone confir this is not 01/04? I mean seriously, a Hasselblad for less than $10000 and now a brand new Sigma fovean for less than $1000.

Did I just die and didn't notice?

Looks like it's not an April fool's joke. B&H are taking preorders for the Sigma SD Quattro at $799 now.

$999 for the sd Quattro and 30mm 1.4 Art lens kit. Sounds like a very competent kit for $1k.

If it was with a 24/2.8 OS I'd order one right now.

Last I read, July.

Should I assume that the SDQ H, would need a full frame lens?

i'm three minutes into it (first talked about design with valid critiques) and he's finally trying to shoot it. for sports/action. annoying. hey, let's take a honda civic out to the racetrack and complain it's too slow.

i'm now 9 minutes in and the next type of shooting is street. lots of complaints of speed and AF. no comment on IQ yet other than to mention foveon layers.

now finished, no comment on IQ other than superfine mode isn't good for moving objects and high iso isn't good. would be nice to see a comparison of IQ to other manufacturers APSC or even FF cams.

basically, all the same complaints of sigma bodies, with no comment on the IQ. i guess it's confirmation that the bodies haven't gotten better, though. but without a comment on IQ, i think it's missing the point a bit. ymmv.

but thanks for posting the video, it's the first review i've seen. the weird body design and placement of buttons doesn't look good.

If there's Nikon F-mount mod for it (like there's for earlier Sigma dSLR:s), I might be tempted. Otherwise not so much, too much money in glass..

What a garbage DigitalRev review. Said nothing about what I wanted to know. The guys has no idea what a Sigma Foveon camera is or can do.

At one point he says that the bokeh of the lens is "almost too creamy...to the point of being curdled." What does that mean? That the lens is too good? Why criticize creamy bokeh? And how is that relevant to the SD Quattro itself?

Just because someone reviews a camera on the internet doesn't mean they know what they are talking about.
