So you think that Sigma shall base selling a camera on people being able to find high quality M42 lenses? Lenses that are good enough for giving the Foveon aliasing effect on SD1?

BTW - I said simple camera. Using a modern camera with old lenses is not simple. An M42 does not close the aperture on exposure on SD1. You have to used it stopped down. There is no split image focussing help on the screen in SD1. And if it were to buy a third party on, it would not be useful with the lens stopped down.
