Yeah, it'll be a great camera when it takes over the world. Or it will fail miserably, as Sigma cameras tend to do.

A camera, or any product, does not have to have a big market share to be very successful and very profitable. Macs and iPhones are a perfect example of that.

A business needs to be profitable and sustainable.

Sigma's market share is under 1% and shrinking (it was slightly over 1% several years back) and their CEO said he 'hopes to make the camera division stable,' which means that it's not in good shape.

My Sigma cameras haven't failed me yet.

Luck. Reliability is not their strong suit.

They give me ridiculously better image quality than I can get with a Bayer sensor camera. 15MP of Bayer looks like crap next to 15MP of Foveon.

If you're really getting 'crap', then the Bayer camera is defective or you're doing something wrong.

Which camera is it, and how did you compare them? Were the images of the same subject taken with the same settings and in the same conditions with the same post processing? If not, it's not a valid comparison (and it almost never is).
