SD 16: 1.5 crop with ......

photosites the same size as an SD10 = more light gathering =better dynamic range & highlight recovery, & tonal gradation. Offset microlenses if it actually helps, a better res LCD, and above average auto focus. Combined with advances in signal processing (speed and quality) I'd think it would be a nice camera. Not sure what the spatial resolution would be, but it would probably suffice for 90% of what people need/want, and probably a good bit cheaper.

Throw in live view (at least tethering), lens calibration, 100% view finder, ISO 25 to 800

I like the SD10 Body layout & I'd really like to see a return to that configuration. Simple, no frills, functional, top lcd.

Maybe Sigma should go back to National Semiconductor for their fab work, seems like they had a good handle on producing the chip, if that is indeed part of the problem........or maybe give these folks a call

Thanks for asking........
