My thoughts as well. Clearly Sigma doesn't do any market research of what their customers need - I don't believe that anybody on Earth would ask of a limo-stretched body or a crippled Foveon sensor (less resolution possibly, but 4:1:1 ratio of colour pixels definitely not). I respect Sigma's innovative spirit but sometimes I wish they put their customers' needs ahead of their pure desire to be different. Why not ILC, for example, is beyond my comprehension.

Lots of people asked for a good grip and everyone asked for much longer battery life.

Many users wanted higher ISO options.

The new design provides these. Nobody can say how comfortable it is until they have used the camera.

In my opinion the big fault of the new design is the lack of a hinged mirror. Focus peaking is a firmware feature and could still be provided.
