In the last few weeks I have had the chance to travel with Sigma’s 18-35mm F1.8 lens to New Jersey, Las Vegas and Chicago. The lens was put through the tests on a Canon 7D, 50D, and 60D. I was so intrigued by the lens that as a full-frame shooter, I went and found a cropped sensor camera just to use it. It was well worth it.
The Sigma dp Quattro series of cameras is a great camera for a number of reasons. Not only is the camera one of the sharpest digital cameras on the market, but also purists will love it for its true film like qualities.
If you have ever photographed a classic Hasselblad camera, then the square format (1:1 aspect ratio) will feel natural as well as be a throwback. With this you don’t need to worry about portrait or landscape orientations. Just leave a little room to crop and you are good to go.
