Re: what I've learned from this thread

I think the above nails it in a nutshell, and also manages to offend about 99% of commercial shooters and journalists who don't care about the relative abilities of their camera compared to others but use their system for the capabilities it allows them. Shooting bugs and flowers to show off the fact they aren't using a bayer based sensor isn't a priority.

Second, back in those film days low ISO color landscape photography was regarded as the most insipid, boring and cliche faction of visual imagery of any art medium. It was mocked then - it can be mocked now. As to why Sigma users seemed so obsessed with taking pictures of bugs and flowers kind of answers it's own question.

Realistically the majority of commercial shooters are creating insipid, boring and clichéd images even to themselves, at least colour landscape photography whilst arguably not fostering any great artistic advances in recent decades tends to be taken from love of the subject rather than purely commercial gain.
