A time of choice

From the experiences of dp1 & dp2, Sigma will disappoint you again: a long time waiting for real product release + high prices + slow operation + bad mechanics + low batt. I think that the image is very good, but everything else is bad.

Yeah, but even if any of that is the case with the new cameras (too early to know) it's all gone after the image is taken.

Do you just wander around focusing all day? Or do you take photographs! Time to decide, are you a photographer or a semi-pro focuser! Certainly some other body is up to the challenge of letting you focus lighting quick. It's the DP cameras that take you beyond the half-press.

Now is that a great marketing slogan or what? Sadly I doubt we'll ever see it used. Too inside-baseball.
