Sigma, the FUNNIEST company EVER...
May 20, 2011

If indeed true (the price), i think that this is the best way to really lead the company to a total failure. First, you release 4 cameras with low resolution and tell people thats all you need. (and with three of them with big problems-noise, buffer and color....) Then you release a camera with 3,5 times resolution the cameras you had before for 9000 usd....we have cameras with 24mp (APS-C) coming for 1100 usd and you can put a ZEISS glass on it. Sigma still has very few lenses that will match the SD1 power. Pentax has much more history than Sigma, Nikon also and im not going to even mention Leica. All of them have a history in reability....Sigma, so far, doesnt. Who in the hell would choose an SD1 over an DX3?

And to the last part, if even EVERYONE at the Sigma forum is telling that will not get one, who will? Probably some of the employees who will have a big discount.

Sigma, wake up and smell the coffe...even if the camera has outstanding performance, no one with other system will buy it for this price....
