Personally, I think the SD1 was a camera they had to make, but they screwed up on the details and the price. The issue is not just "resolution" as a figure, but the image as a whole. The SD1 works on that basis, although still the price is high.

No need to get too discouraged about Sigma, because I don't see them going out of business anytime soon, and they seem to want to be in the camera business.

So the next one: how about an 8-10 (x3) MP, which should be dynamite with the better lenses, and a somewhat improved SPP, with complete user controls for NR and no pixel smearing to provide per pixel sharpness, when desired. SPP needs to have a "do everything for the user" mode, and a "make the user decide everything" mode.

With my older version of SPP I tend to use auto and then go slightly more in the directions indicated.
