Sigma dp2 Quattro Review – Verdict

Sigma dp2 front view

There’s not denying that the dp2 Quattro is a camera which can excel in the right conditions. In good light and at lower ISO settings the level of detail and general image quality is outstanding

However, the Quattro struggles at higher ISO settings, the fact you can’t process the Raw files on anything else than Sigma’s software is frustrating and while the quirky body shape use useful in some conditions it results in a body far bulkier than some equivalent models.
