Sigma DP2 Quattro: First full size images and ISO test!

The new Sigma DP2 Quattro promises to deliver “almost” medium format quality on a tiny APS-C sensor. So let’s check these new image samples to see if it’s true!

Yodobashi posted some low resolution image samples and included a rough ISO test. Also Mapcamera posted some nice images but again no high resolution version. To find them you have to click over at Digitalcamera and Sigma-Japan. They posted some high resolution images you can download to pixel peep!

And what do you think?
