Which it excels at. Why is that hard for you to understand?

DPreview rates the SD1 as 71%, not a respectable showing.

Because they are considering other things such as high ISO.

Flaws of the DP1 are listed clearly in the DPreview of the camera.

First off, DPReview has never reviewed a Sigma *DP* Merrill series camera. That said, any so-called "flaws" they have, have zero to do with them having the best image quality at low ISO.

All the arguments in the world won't change the fact that Sigma hasn't yet learned how to build a camera competitive with the other manufacturers.

If Sigma wanted to be competitive with other cameras for the mass market it would also make Bayer sensor cameras. Obviously they are not. In the CEO's own words, he would be happy if sales were simply "stable."

Someday Sigma may build a decent camera, but today it's not a good choice for many photographers.

Read again what you just wrote. You said "for many photographers." Now try and explain your previous comment where you said: "The continued rant from Sigma fans shows their desperation to defend their choice of a mediocre camera."

In your own words you are admitting for some photographers it is obviously not a "mediocre camera."
