The colors and dynamic range appear to exceed those of the SD1m but I won't do direct comparison testing until the weekend.
This will be heresy but I prefer the images on this new Sigma camera to those from the Sony A7rii. I can't explain it but the Sony photos appear to have no soul compared to what I get on the new Sigma. Of course, this is just a matter of personal taste and I know I am severely limited to low ISO and slow operation on the Sigma all the way around. But I am in no hurry. I can't wait to take this Sigma to Yosemite National Park in July.
Eager to hear your thoughts when yours arrives.
Good to hear Eric.
My day will come soon enough.
Just not in a hurry at the moment.
