Sigma DP2 Merrill. It's amazing, the silliness one can get up to during a lockdown...
Let me know if you're all getting tired of this thread! Meanwhile, here are three from a DP-2 Merrill.
Please keep running this when the mood strikes, I enjoy the photos.
Foveon images always do look nice to me, but the question of how many "real" pixels the images have has always been a mystery to me too.
Regardless, like Sandy, I would like to see you-all keep 'em coming!

I too have done the same...it just seems Sigma is losing interest in the Foveon sensor which is unfortunate as I thought it always had potential as seen in the images posted here on this forum.
Cameras still seem to be available from Sigma in the U.S., but the last info I can find on their plans is from February 19 this year. Impressive results all, but I probably have a lifetime supply of cameras and lenses.
It has its own disadvantages: Low light nasty noise, terrible flare/glow against the sunlight etc
But for sure, all users are happy with the details produced.

Continue to enjoy these, thanks - even used, the cameras are still expensive, and I already have a lifetime supply of cameras and lenses!
I noted one image had a Pentacon label.
Which Foveon cameras have interchangeable lenses?
The Sigma SD Quattro series is the current flagship, using the Sigma SA lens mount. Adapters are available to fit other mounts, hence the Pentacon tag you noticed.

Sigma SD Quattro Review - The Strangest Camera I've Ever Used
Fabulous images. Color is very vibrant.
I wouldn´t say "vibrant". True, rather. But indeed, these images distinguish themselves in their colour rendition.
So maybe a shame to turn those images into monochromes ;-)
