Well where can I start.... I waited way too long to get one,this camera is from 2003 and I just recently bought one. I own both a Minolta 7D and a Fujilm S3 pro along with the Sigma. I only rated the features at 3 because it has less features in relation to others, but this camera does not really need any more. It is a totally no nonsense camera and this really helps you concentrate in picture taking. Image quality on the whole is excellent going down to good at ISO800 (with carefull ...

Started out with SD9 and sold it when I found 2 SD10s on eBay (one heavily used, one virtually new). Improvements in colour fidelity and low light sensitivity. PhotoPro software is outstanding. Other than the SD9 this is the first digital I've owned that actually made me want to go out and look for photo opportunities. The Sigma sensor design is head and shoulders above Bayer sensors and the only thing hindering public acceptance is the brand name. Problems: Fussy with RCRV3s. Would be nice ...

I had a D100, a D70 and after i bought a SD10. The difference of the pictures quality is incroyable. I don't understand why the SD10 is so unknow. The marketing is a strange world. Pictures quality over all for the SD10. Problems: Reacivity and speed of AF.

I have used Canons for the last few years and have never been 100% satisfied with the output. Cameras used include the 10, d60 and 1D. So far I have to say the sigma's sharp pics are really to my likiing, more so than he Canon's I used (1D owners would probably flame me if they could on that one). I really like the camera so far. Coming from Canon the sigma's non-metal body may throw you at first but it is solid. Minor nits so far include: eyepiece comes off too easily, the included hard ...

SD10 is a minimalistic camera. It only does the essentials (hence 2 stars for it's features), and this is exactly what I wanted. SD10 is a good performer at a very reasonable price (about € 640 from Germany - brand new). Had it not been AF -no specific issues on that, I just deslike AF-, it could well be a photographer's camera. Problems: None.

I have a studio and I shoot weddings, product and models. I used film camera for couple of years and 4 months ago I switched to digital. Sigma SD10 is easy to use, not too many menus, easy acces to functions directly on buttons. Viewfinder is acceptable, autofocus in good light is accurate and fast. Not as fast as Canon's autofocus, but I would say more accurate. In low light, autofocus is not so fast and sometimes the lens hunting a bit befor locking. For studio work, this camera is a ...

This camera is capable of capturing great images, however, the flash and camera are difficult to coordinate. Most of the time I have to use the camera in manual mode and adjust the exposure constantly to available light and proximity of the subject. Also there is no off camera cord available for the TTL flash and the flash can create annoying shadows when used on the hot shoe. Problems: Many times the "low battery" icon appears even when the batteries are brand new. Removing the battery ...
