Re: May I ask the people in this Sigma forum...

Echoing what the other posters here have all said, plus an additional consideration...

Sigma does not market cameras like the big consumer companies (Sony, Nikon, Canon) do. They build something, slowly refine and revise it over time, and then after some time a new generation will appear (think 4+ years).

If you are a gear enthusiast who enjoys having the latest, greatest, fully featured digicam then this is not a path you will enjoy.

If you would like an exceptional camera, that makes exceptional demands of you in return for sometimes brilliant and peerless image quality, and a camera that you will get to know intimately and shoot for years, then you should consider the joy of being a Sigmaphile.

Many of the photos here still shoot the ancient (in digital camera terms) SD9 and SD10, and many are shooing the first generation DP series. These are cameras you tend to hold on to for a long time.
