In the last few weeks Sigma Corporation released a couple of updates into the world. Since I was away to enjoy a bit of free time without internet I collected them in this single post.
First up are two firmware updates for the DP1x and DP2x. For both cameras it is now possible to shoot in RAW+JPEG. Noise performance under certain circumstances has been improved. For the DP1x there are several performance enhancements and improvements to enhance the integration with the DP2x.

Last month Sigma also issued a firmware update for the SD1.
The new 150mm Macro with Optical Stabilizer is now shipping for Canon, Sigma & Nikon mount. We were fortunate to have the possibility to try out this lens. And it is really good. Expect an article about it in the coming weeks.
Sigma also introduced a new generation of the 12-24mm lens, an extremely wide full frame lens. No shipping date was given yet. The lens will be available in Canon, Nikon and Sigma mount.
For those that can’t afford the new high priced SD1, Sigma introduced a new affordable Sigma SD15 kit. It’s called the “SIGMA SD15 TWIN ZOOM KIT” offering a wide shooting coverage. The kit contains The SD15 and two lenses, the SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM and the SIGMA 50-200mm F4-5.6 DC OS HSM. A great kit to get started in the world of this unique sensor technology.
