Ready to switch back!
Jun 12, 2012

Ok I think I would like you Sigma users opinions here.

My current rig.
Canon 5D2 w/grip
EF 28mm f/1.8 USM
EF 85 f/1.8 USM
EF 300 f/4.0L USM
580 EX2 Flash

Seriously thinking of switching to...

Sigma SD1M w/grip
30mm f/1.4 DG EX HSM
85mm f/1.4 DG EX HSM
150mm f/2.8 DG EX OS HSM
EF 610 DG ST Flash

The deciding factor for me is versatility. Can the SD1M handle a job like shooting a theater production under stage lights? Can I shoot an indoor wedding with flash and not have any problems? There are a lot of questions especially the big one... is the cost of the new equipment worth the images i'm going to get? Im a people photographer and only really do landscapes, nature, and macro for fun. Most of the posts here are of flowers, animals, and landscapes.

... either way Im going to wait for Adobe Lightroom support.... If LR support doesn't happen then I guess I just stick to the Canon, it hasn't let me down yet.. unlike Sigma has in the past.
Thoughts?

Canon EOS 5D Mark II Sigma SD1
