    The 30 & 56 f1.4's in m4/3 mount. Both wonderful lenses, in pure IQ the 56 is a little bit better near wide open, the 30 a more used focal length for me.

    85mm DG DN and it's my favourite and most used FF lens.

    I've also had the 35mm/f1.2 DG DN and 150-600mm Contemporary for FF and 18-35mm for APSC.

    150-600mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM C
    24-70mm F/2.8 DG OS Art
    24-105mm F/4 DG OS Art
    70-200mm F/2.8 DG OS Sports
    Looking at the 28mm F/1.4 Art (rented once) but can't decide between this FL or a 35mm F/1.4.
    All are Canon EF mount and all are great quality and very sharp lenses once calibrated.

    As a Sigma SD14 user, I've got couple of (older) SA mount lenses. In order of appearance:
    18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS (was included as kit lens, rarely used)
    105mm F2.8 EX DG Macro (just a very good lens, esp for manual focusing)
    10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM (older model, a bit decentered at some focal lengths)
    17-70mm F2.8-4.5 DC Macro (my favourite universal lens)

    I've got few more very old Sigma lens (from some bay area), but they are either out of order or just not up to standards :)
    Sigma 75-300mm F4.5-5.6 APO DL (converted to M42, practically not usable - there are some mechanical problems, it may be created from different lens parts)
    Sigma 28-70mm F2.8-4 UC Zoom (a bit low contrast, flares, not very sharp - 17-70 above is much better)

    Sigma 105mm F1.4 Art EF mount. My only sigma lens, though I am looking at getting a few more. Some of the sigma lenses adapts very nicely with my Fuji body.

    Old 12-24 with broken autofocus but still WIDE
    Sigma 105mm f/1.4 Art my number one rebuy lens after death and reincarnation
    18-35mm f/1.8 because anything else doesn't feel right on my R7 for walkaround stuff
    35mm f/1.4 Art it's nice, but I would like the 28 or 40 at some point for crazy wide open sharpness and less chromatic abberation.

    Used to have a 150-600mm sport in EF mount. Great lens although heavy, which is the reason I sold it.
    Practicly gave away an old EF 28-70mm f/2.8 to a friend of mine, which gave a very nice vintage look to pictures at all focal lengths and I kinda miss it.

    Hi,

    I have an old 105mm Macro of the Nikon AFD variety.

    And a 150-600 Contemporary.

    That's it. Both used on a Df at this point. Sometimes an F5. Which is why I opted for the 150-600 from Sigma over the Nikkor 200-500. An F5 can't use an Electronic Aperture lens.

    That macro lens has been around a long time. Since my F4 I think.

    45mm f/2.8 DG DN
    24mm f/3.5 DG DN
    90mm f/2.8 DG DN

    Interested by the 24-70mm f/2.8 too

    good, but I'm always a bit frustrated by the sharpness of my raws (Sigma fp) but maybe it's just me pixelpeeping too hard...
    Maybe a newbie question, but are the color mode settings applied to raws or are they there only for jpg rendition?

    They are used by Sigma Photo Pro as the starting point when you open the RAW file in it. Lightroom does support camera profiles from the fp, but I don't think it applies the camera profile on its own.

    With Sigma cameras I always set the sharpness setting of the color mode to -1 in the camera so that Sigma Photo Pro uses that as a starting point - and so the OOC JPEGs aren't over-sharpened. To be honest, I very rarely convert RAW files outside the camera since dp2 Quattro gained the excellent in-camera RAW converter that the fp also inherited.

    Processing in SPP6.8.2 @gregvds
    Personally, I use SPP6.8.2 for my RAW all the time, all the way on my Sigma photos, ie I don't further process in other programs except for an occasional crop/straighten in another free program. Big however, all my Sigma cameras are Foveon-based. I am not familiar with the fp (non Foveon sensor) as to whether they process similarly. I won't go into detail on my settings unless someone else replies to that question. Then I'd be glad to detail what I do in SPP. Here's one I've just processed from Mesa Verde DP2Merrill. It's not online, so I'll see if I can upload a small version directly from my computer. I'll try a quality 8 JPEG which is 3MB. Quality10 was too large to directly upload to DPRevived. Normally I save all JPEGs at maximum quality 12, in the case of this photo, that's 14.10MB. Essentially first I select the 'best' white balance, then the colormode which gives the 'best' result to what I'm trying to achieve. Then I adjust the colorwheel and the sliders. Yes, I sharpen to my taste in SPP too.

    Jpg looks excellent, wouldn't worry about trying for higher quality for the forum.
