That's an opinion.

I'm inclined to give Sigma the benefit of doubt and believe that they know what they are doing. They just do not have the necessary know-how, nor the resources to acquire such know-how within the relatively short time frame.

Entirely possible, I've expressed similar theory before.

Most of the weakness of SD (and DP) are sensor related. So changing to a Canon or Nikon body wouldn't solve many of the problems, except perhaps AF speed and accuracy.

I'm puzzled. What sigma is doing with Foveon sensor refinement is rather exemplary. What is lacking (in my view) is mainly (lackluster) performance on processing and utility side, including SPP.
