Thanks for the heads up Sandy. Sadly the link you posted did'nt work on my end but I did a search and found the relevant gallery anyway.

Knowing how good Carls photos can be I have to say that Carls SD1 sample photos were supprisingly poor samples period.

This is probably because the 120-300 he used is clearly not sharp enough for the SD1's sensor. He also did'nt use enough sharpening. I can confirm this because one click of sharpening in Irfanview made them look a lot more natural.

And the ones by Bill Sullivan were even worse. Bill used far too wide an aperture in both portraits and as a result most of the models faces are out of focus, including the most important part of any portrait...their eyes!

Very poor samples to be using for advertising purposes, especially for a camera with a lucacrously sky high price tag...This is adding insult to injury for Sigma.
