If only Sony could make cameras as good looking as Fuji... :)
ruicarv79: I would love to know the criteria behind these "Readers' Showcase" choices. Another dull, meaningless photographer. What's so special about these photos? Cannot understand, really. Sorry but can't help not expressing my opinion.
BaldCol, your appreciation "I enjoyed looking at them" just emphasizes my point. There is really nothing worth highlighting. Very nice scenery yes but nothing special about the shots. With all respect, it's nothing that anyonne with some experience wouldn't do.If this is "Readers' Showcase" standard I won't ever agian spend my time browsing. Maybe I'm just far too demanding...
Is that so BaldCol? Can you please share what you consider so special about the photos of this highly regarded reader?I don't see anything special. Not even one photo that I consider worth of any mention. It's my opinion, sorry if it is dull and meaningless to you.

I also don't what's so special about these shots. Okay, they are in focus, the composition is ok, the scenary is beautiful but why this highlight?I don't mean to be a jealous guy, I'm simply trying to be as honest as possible.Can't really see anything special here. Is he son or related with anyone in dpreview? :)Sorry, this is just my feeling.
Eugene232: is anyone buy these "limited editions" cameras?or anyone seen these people?
Of course there is. That is why you have this offer.
ElviraGrey: Wow! This is just amazing.
cjf2: Great photo. This was my favourite.
white shadow: What a teaser! No weight, price and how big it is.
Weight and size you can see it in Sigma website:http://www.sigmaphoto.com/product/24-35mm-f2-dg-hsm-a?link=jun-m-24-35Weight: 940g/ 33.2ozSize: 87.6x122.7 mm/3.4x4.8 in
No price though... :)
Don´t get too excite about the bokeh. It is nice under these circumstances, which are not challenging at all. But nice anyway. ;)
Do we really need the Fuji X30? In one word: NO!
australopithecus: What's beautiful about a game that hosts players who argue with referees, who act as if they are injured (put them in a rugby scrum for a few games then they'll learn about pain !) and who bite. For this they are paid ridiculous sums of money.
Did you take your pills today, munro harrap?
No, you're right. Rugby is the most beautiful game together with figure skating.
The Name is Bond: I've always laughed at the idea of it being the 'beautiful' game. The irony is wonderful.
It's no irony. Maybe you don't consider it to be beautiful but that's YOUR opinion. I find it very beautiful indeed as well as a billion people around the world. ;)It's easely more beautiful than USA's football that's for sure... :)
Interesting to see how Tamron and Sigma are diverging: Tamron releases a set of superzooms, while Sigma a set of premium primes.Who will win the most? Let's wait and see... :)
Rob Sims: I'm slightly struggling to tell who this is aimed at. Cheaper superzooms lenses nearly always compromise on a speed and image quality... two of the main reasons why most users would have upgraded to FF for in the first place.
Is the 'beginner' FF-user category really large enough to warrant creating this lens? i'd have thought someone interested in this sort of lens would be better off with a superzoom attached to an m43 / aps-c sensor instead (just my 2ps worth).
That is right Andy. That is exactly the argument I hear. I don't agree with that kind of thinking (in that case I would buy a smaller package just for holidays - with 500€ you can buy pretty good gear) but we have to respect... :)
I tend to agree with you but I know some FF users that buy this kind of superzooms. It's hard to understand from my (our) perspective but it sure happens.
I'm so glad I didn't buy this one!
