Good comments and as a fellow Sigma (DP2, SD15, SD1) user I can agree with most of them.

There is a mindset and there is a photo.  Two different things.

At this point I'm not thinking seriously of using my Sigmas in low light, since I have another camera that does well in low light.  When they have lots of light they work very well, at least that has been my experience.  I think they could do well in low light if the pixels were 4x bigger, but today's market will not support that so we will never see it.

My biggest problem in the past was trying to use them in every situation and they really don't do well as all-around general purpose cameras.

Yesterday in full sunlight I compared my DP2 and my Fuji X10, with the X10 in EXR high dynamic range mode (6 megapixel images from a 12 megapixel sensor).  The DP2 won!  So, what Sigmas do best is really very good indeed.
