I agree. I'm tired of Sigma of Sigma trading IQ for absolute resolution. I'd be willing to bet that a 15-20mp FF sensor would produce much better results than what I've seen from the SD1 so far with all its shadow banding and noise at iso 100.

Yes, a 15-20 MP FF sensor would be much better. There are some potential problems.

  1. Cost

  2. Heat

  3. Lenses
