Lately I've been researching all the various wide angle lenses you can get for a modern DSLR. After shooting mirrorless for awhile and witnessing the smallness and simplicity of compact M-mount wide angle glass, especially the Voigtlander 15mm f/4.5 Heliar lens, I've been searching for a DSLR...
Out yesterday in Phoenix with the car after a good wash and stopped to get a few shots.
A6000 and 28mm Sigma MF. Wrong time of the day though, 1:00 in the afternoon so I did my best. That early afternoon sun is harsh ;-)
So I finally got around to replacing my 25" 2560x1440 Dell monitor with a LG 27UD58 27" 4K one. I find that the prices are reasonable now, and spending a lot of time looking at photos and working with photos I felt I could justify the expense. Fortulately my wife agreed :D

It starts out as a peaceful march through the city and always (ALWAYS!) ends with these folks doing some petty mayhem and...

All images are too dark, dial setting P.
How to solve this issue?
Tips and replies are welcome, thanks in advance.
So, after owning (and mostly loving) the Sigma DP Merrill cameras, I decided I would create a camera dichotomy:
1) A Sony RX10 mkii which is likely the most technically sophisticated, easy-to-use, compact, and multi-purpose camera ever made. It produces detailed, clinically accurate files with...

I love the original Sigma DP1 and DP2, and still use them from time to time as I really enjoy the transparent clarity and sparkle of the images. There's something about the way the raw files in SPP have a unique look in the shadows and highlights.
I'm about to buy one of the last...
