Bottom-left corner of the front-left window. I win! Assuming we're playing "Hunt the Old Woman".


Until you have tried a Sigma camera you cannot really cooment on just looking at the review samples here. I had the good fortune to win a SD15 in a national photgraphic magazine competition. Until that time I had never considered buying a Sigma camera but now I have had the camera a few months I am totally in love with the camera.
I have sold all my Canon gear and have stopped using Lightroom. I have the SD15 with the 18-50mmm and a 70-300mm and use the recently updated Sigma RAW software and I am enjoying my photography more than I have done for years, I can't wait to get out and take pictures and get home and "process" them.
The camera is so simple to use, no complicated menus, no special modes, no video, just PAS&M and decide on the focussing and take pictures.
Also having sold my Canon stuff I am a few thousand pounds richer and really enjoying taking pictures again.
Don't knock it till you have tried it ! there is something special about the Foveon senserand I won't be going back!
