When it crashes the first time you go to use it I'd say it's not a great choice  <_<  Another review I read said it's great in a controlled studio environment, but not good for a street shooter. When I go mirrorless I'm pretty confident I'll be going with the Fuji X-A3. I wanted to check out this Sigma however, and read several reviews before making a decision.

 


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

Just looking at the video, this is probably one to skip...

Unless you like the theme from Jeopardy, that's what you'll be hearing in your head while waiting for your photos to make it to the display screen for review.

I know looks have little to do with a cameras quality but that is one ugly camera.

Thanks for the post.

 

I kept waiting for the reviewer to lose it, and call the camera a POS.  <_<  If that thing is the best they can do, Sigma should stick to making lenses.   <_<

How they can ask $999 for it is a complete mystery. The Fuji XA3 is $599 and gets good reviews for a mirrorless with roughly the same specs.
