All three models will have 920k dot rear LCDs and 9-point contrast-detection autofocus systems. You can enjoy improved optics, ISO performance, image processing and design.

Works of art camera

The Sigma DP Quattro is redesigned in every aspect, including the sensor, engine, lens and body, the DP Quattro Compact Camera series embodies Sigma’s philosophy of creating cameras that produce works of art. If you look the specification, then the cameras are similar to the Sigma Merrills, - fixed 19mm, 30mm, and 50mm f/2.8 lenses paired with Sigma’s unique Foveon APS- C sensor - but the industrial design is a radical departure from anything else on the market. The Sigma DP2 Quattro is the next generation of its DP series of APS-C sensor, fixed focal length cameras.

The camera is made ​​by Sigma is different from other cameras, Sigma's cameras use a technology called Foveon. This special sensor has three layers, with each layer sensitive to blue, red or green. This way the camera has color information from all three channels at every point in the frame. The result is generally a very sharp, very large image. Autofocus is greatly improved, continuous shooting times are a little more usable, and the battery life has more than doubled.  The Quattro models will also see vastly improved battery life when compared to previous DP-series compacts.

If you are interested in the sophistication of the camera sensor and lens on the Sigma DP Quattro, then what series would you choose out of the three?
