F mount and I'd get one
May 29, 2011

Just to put another view out there.

If the SD1 came with a native F mount and could use the Nikon CLS like some of the old Fujifilm SLR's could I would probably buy one.

That is assuming the IQ is as good as I expect it to be.

For me, it would be a nice back-up or supplement to my D3x and would have further leveraged my F mount glass.

Under those conditions the otherwise insane price would not have been a deal breaker since Nikon refuses to put a D3x type sensor in a smaller package. The 1.5 crop factor would also give me some more versatility at the long end.

But for Sigma to expect me to jump in and be restricted to Sigma glass (for full functionality) is absurd. I'll spend for quality, my other FF is a Leica M9, but premium prices for a system using second tier glass? Not so much.

Best,

Bill
