"Well it's about time!" is my first reaction. When was it they first announced it for 2009? November 2008?
I've been waiting for some real reviews and a lot of sample images.
There was a time when I seriously considered switching from Nikon to Sigma's SD-14, but felt that the fuzzy WB and JPG-performance, coupled with overall slowness, would tax my patience.
As most of my "serious" photography is portraiture and still life, an upgraded SD14 could be the answer. But, as always, it remains to be seen if the marketing hype is the usual exaggeration of reality.
Still..when looking at good sample shots taken with the FOVEON sensor, I can't help but being in the grip of the same enthusiasm that FOVEON-disciples are so boisterous about..lol.
Now it'll be another 3-4 months I'm sure, before it hits the market in any numbers..lol
