Re: If Sigma had a mirrorless camera (CSC) ... pros/cons

Owning both the DP1M and DP2M plus AML-2 for close up work, I do not see a need for another Foveon sensor in my future. The low ISO is the main limiting factor. For most non-static shots, another technology is most times preferable. The Olympus and Panasonic MILCs have high ISO and small lenses to make them shine. A Foveon sensor based body would have Sony size lenses which would need to be stabilized by a tripod at least. That in itself kills the advantage of the small size. I am sure they will do it at some point but after selling a boat load of ones and twos, who would be left to buy a duplicate MILC.
