How do you guys focus when shooting for stitching? Do you use the hyperfocal distance? Focus 1/3 into the photo as an approximation?

Just focus on whatever you want to be in focus and choose the required F-stop.

If your doing a 3 shot stitch to get the look of shooting it with a larger format lens, Benzler method or whatever its called, then you focus on that subject

If you want a landscape shot with everything in focus, you would use the hyperfocal, just like doing a single frame composition.

Using really long glass for multi row pano's can present some issues with DoF, but with just a 30mm lens, DoF really isn't an issue, nor is field curvature as you rotate the camera

Nice one Tim!

This resident has obviously "a thing" with the sea.

In May I spent one week snorkeling on the Maldives. After testing and discussing some options for underwater photography I decided to get a Ewa-Marine housing for my DP2M and use the Sigma for underwater images on this trip.
Since I had lots of problems with this combination, it is a solution I would not really recommend (at least not for underwater images, for rafting, kayaking, canyoning etc. it could work).
You can find some more information about the problems on my blog:

Here are some images from this trip:

alwang - This shot was taken by the DP2M. I stitched together several images to gain a wider perspective.

I have been shooting these for a while now, and I have to say they are truly impressive little cameras. They have one fatal flaw for me though, how they handle shooting into the sun. I like to do sunbursts coming up over the horizon, and well, these cameras just can't do it.

For your viewing pleasure. Red grid flare. I can do this with my SLR just fine, with minimal flare, I have never seen anything like this before.

Is the Lightroom workflow on this still terrible?

Export to DNG from the horrible Sigma software then import the DNG into Lightroom?

I don't think the Sigma software is horrible at all. I actually think the software is quiet good. My only issue is that it is rather slow, but the tools are fine. Once I exported the TIFF files I hardly have to do anything in ACR or LR.
This is a quote from another user and I agree; But the thing I like most...is the moment during the 'development' when the RAW X3F file suddenly 'materializes' right before your eyes revealing all its the Foveon '3D' magic and razor edged sharpness.

People keep saying it is worthless and horrible and everybody starts to believe it. Not the whole world is Adobe.
The software gets regular updates and I have the feeling that Sigma is on top of it to develop it further.
