The trio of Foveon-based cameras announced in February are priced similarly to their predecessors.
The company adds a 24mm f1.4 to its excellent lens portfolio.
The DP3 Merrill camera narrows its angle of view, and that's about it.
While it's not cheap, the Sigma 50mm f1.4 lens provides great value for the money.
As long as it stays at a sub-$1,000 price, the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM lens will be a great deal for photographers using APS-C dSLRs.
Versatile, sturdy, and built with high-quality optics, the Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM offers a good value, although it's not exactly cheap.
The non-weather-sealed version of the lens is imminent.
The Sigma DP2 doesn't really live up to the promise of its Foveon sensor, but it does excel for shooting in black and white photos.
Pricing not available
The 50mm delivers sharp photos at almost all apertures.
Under CEO Kazuto Yamaki, Sigma has helped transform the Japanese company so most of its revenue comes from higher-end products. Too bad about the camera business, though.
