Re: To further amplify what I mean...

There are no color issues with the Sigma SD15. Period. I've shot with it and found it to be a very refined, corrected version of the SD14. Basically it is the camera that the SD14 should have been. The SD15 has some flash issues that need to be addressed by Sigma---thats the only problem I found with the camera to date. I've re-looked at your images that you posted on my color calibrated photography studio's monitor and have this comment. I think the colors look oversaturated and artificial. They look "cooked" to me. The landscape appears oversharpened and the purple sky looks a little cartoonish for my tastes. I can see why you like Steve Chong's natural looking landscapes. You should take a note from him on how to produce natural looking colorful images that look real. There is nothing remarkable that he does with the SD15. He has a very good eye to begin with and makes good use of the camera's capabilities. I think he is one of the best Landscape photographers in the Sigma forum. So you have good taste in photographers afterall---even if they shoot with inferior cameras according to you.
