You are correct in that SLRs are certainly more versatile. I think the low iso noise is one of the worst things about Sigma/Foveon cameras, and was really hoping they would find a way to fix it with the SD1. I think it's deep in the sensor level technology, and we just need to live with it, and work within it's strengths.

My response before might have sounded a bit unpleasant - sorry about that. It was written with more of a sigh of being unhappy with the situation as well.

I spoke from ignorance on the matter, because one of the key advantages that people talk about with SLRs is versatility. In any case, point taken that not all cameras do all things.

Do Sigma SLRs really have to be kept at that low of an ISO?

I love the look of Sigmas, but that is really low for what is supposed to be an all-around tool for photography.
