I don't know why I waste my time on this forum.

people make statements that are ridiculous.

and really its disrespectful to someone like the owner of Sigma.

here we have someone who owns one of the last FAMILY run independent remaining lens and camera companies in Japan.

this is a person who has created one of best digital cameras ever produced with regard to image quality -being in the same class as the Nikon D800E.

in addition the company is now producing lens ( art series ) which are in the category of the legendary German makers for a fraction of the cost

his compacts have no peer for the money and now he has stated that he is about to release a camera which will be a "show stopper"

the folks making comments have an understanding of digital cameras which is extremely primitive compared to this person and would do well to keep the mouth shut and the eyes open as they have alot to learn.

there is a very good reason the camera is shaped as it is and there is also a very good reason its a fixed lens

It has NOTHING to do with the technology of camera making and a LOT to do with BUSINESS DECISIONS.

The CEO of Sigma constantly goes after a small market & its matching demographic, almost (intentionally?) missing out on huge opportunities of grabbing more business, and therefore, more customers and more profit.  In other words, I lament that Sigma isn't doing BETTER and seriously question the motives and decisions of the CEO, who seems to have a limited view of how popular his products could become if only they were targeted to the center of the market.

It is a form of corporate support - I HATE seeing companies fail.  I don't give a rat's turd about the stockholders because, contrary to what Wall Street wants to tell you, your money is NOT guaranteed when you invest in stocks.  I feel sorry for the WORKERS when a business goes under - they usually have very little say in the day-to-day operations yet they always are the first, and greatest, to pay the price for screwups in the form of layoffs, cutbacks, pensions disappearing and losing their livelihood.  Stockholders get to sue a company when their stocks lose value because of incompetent or fraudulent management but laid off workers get a pink slip and told "Too bad".

Who wants Sigma to suffer??!  I certainly don't but almost all their camera releases in the past decade, maybe even more, have been underachievers in sales - SOMEONE has to start taking responsibility for this, don't you think??
