Laurence Matson about lenses and Sigma SD1..

Laurence Matson and myself are both old timers – perhaps the oldest of the Sigma community as we both got our first Sigma SD9’s back in 2002. Now Laurence has for many years been the grand father (no, he’s not thaaat old but still.. ) of the Sigma user group and he often has good information to share about stuff regarding Sigma and Foveon. He also spend lots of his time trying to straighten out strange remarks and questions at the Dpreview Sigma forum even though he answers a lot like Steve Jobs, short. He has this remarkable sense of humor that some get, some don’t – it’s kind of abstract and.. a lot of fun. :)

Now, this man recently answered some question at the forum and his text, or article was interesting and should be shared.  Direct link.

About Carl Rytterfalk

Welcome to my blog! I'm Carl Rytterfalk, a swedish photographer who loves everything that is interesting in the world of photography. In 2002 I fell in love with the three layered Foveon sensor and has since then been an addicted user of Sigma cameras. Though I use Canon and Nikon as well. :)

  1. Tip of the hat to Lawrence. Thanks for linking this Carl otherwise I would have missed it.
    The SD1 is quite the enigma since we have so little good info about how the new model will work.

  2. Ah, thanks Paul. Not often I do things like this – but it’s just a bit too educational to miss. :)

    LOL! Thank you for posting that – if it wasn’t for you, Laurence, Chunsum, Olga, BobNL, Georges and way too many more people to list, who knows what I would be shooting with…. Thank you!

    Seen your work and I find you are THE Nr. 1 Sigma-FanBoy. Having owned a sd10 for a short periode myself I know the ins and outs of this nieché camera. Now for my Q-uestion: Sigma SD1 Do or don’t? To me it seems they got it right, and are going the distance this time.
    Will you be getting one yourself I wonder?

    Wow. More bogus science. Everything LM said in that post is completely wrong. Even the most basic of books on discrete sampling systems, signal theory and semiconductor physics easily prove he’s talking nonsense, let alone any of the more advanced references. Don’t take my word for it, do your own research.
