Reality Check

The sd1 is really not that great a camera.

Sure it is capable of producing images with nice IQ; and if you are willing to pixel peep or print much larger than most folks do the IQ strengths become more obvious. But only if you can get over some software and work flow issues.

I really do not see much else to recommend it after that. There are lots of threads in the Canon/Nikon and other forums about how bigger LCDs with LV provide better critical focus, better AF and AI produce more keepers, cleaner high ISO files allow shooting in dimmer light or with slower lens, faster burst rates and deeper buffers produce more keepers, good customer support, large choice of modern lens, choice of FF or multiple crop factors, and perhaps most damaging to the sd1 price points.
Those who forget history are condemned to go to summer school.
