I agree with the "not for camera wimps" part. Most people that complain about the Sigmas never even shot film. Such people don't seem to realize that back in the film days ISO 100-400 was the norm and photographers did just fine.

Manual exposure and manual focus was once the norm and photographers did just fine, but who wants to go back to that? Heck, typewriters were the norm and authors did just fine too. You're anti-progress.

Technology has greatly advanced since then and digital cameras offer ISOs that people could not even fathom back then. High ISOs open up many new opportunities and best of all, you can still shoot at slow ISOs if that's appropriate for a given subject.

Having a wider choice of ISOs is a very good thing. Why would anyone want to intentionally limit themselves to low ISO? People can take incredible photos in situations they could never have before, and that's a good thing.

And who really cares if someone shot film. Most people haven't shot glass plates either. Digital is where it's at now.
