I think Rolex is a great example. They sponsor a bunch of the events I shoot, so I see their advertising and promotion output up close. They must sell a hell of a lot of watches to afford it all, which always amazes me since watches costing 1/100th of what even a stainless steel Rolex goes for keep better time and have loads more functions. But, obviously, thay ain't a Rolex.

"If they're not screaming at you to get out of the way, you're not close enough" - I thought this was original, but it's very close to what someone else said. Oh, well.

And Sigma is no Leica. It takes a bit of work and heritage to build reputation to sell the product for the premium price. No wannabes have a chance LOL.
