Sigma has announced the new DP1 Quattro fixed lens camera. The DP1 follows the DP2 Quattro, which was announced earlier this year. The DP1 features a 19mm f/2.8 lens, whereas the DP2 featured a 30mm f/2.8 lens.
The Sigma DP1 Quattro retains the unique body design of the DP2, as well as other key features like the 29MP Foveon sensor, which Sigma says matches the resolution of a 39MP Bayer sensor.
