Sigma unveils DP2 Quattro with 19.6MP Foveon sensor

Not sure what weed Sigma have been smoking but here we go, the brand new DP2 - APS-C sensor and fixed focal length cameras. The latest, 45mm-equivalent, model features dramatic styling and a fundamental re-think of the company's Foveon multi-layer sensor design. The Quattro sensor still uses three layers to detect color information but now only captures its full, 19.6 million pixel resolution in the top layer, with lower two layers capturing 4.9MP of information each. The sensor will also appear in 28mm and 75mm equivalent dp1 Quattro and dp3 Quattro models.

Price and availability have not yet been announced.
