Try to think along the SD1 lines

The SD1 body seems smaller and lighter than the Canon 5DII. I have them here side-by-side and the extra heft isn't solely in the Canon lens. I don't know how the 5DIII compares to the 5DII. The controls on the SD1 are 'easier' IMHO than the Canon. The Canon LCD is much better than the SD1 screen.

Thank you for comparison of SD1 and 5DmkII in terms of body size/weight and LCD. Taking IQ out of equation how do you compare performance and usefulness of features available (or not) on both cameras? It seems like 5DIII is a significant step forward from 5DII which I also have.

I'm so spoiled by the smaller size & weight of the DP2Merrill and really prefer the DP form to the DSLR form.... all the IQ punch of the bigger DSLRs in an EASY to carry size. Could Sigma do something more innovative in body? I've been dragging around 5DII, SD1 and DP2Merrill all day. My neck hurts....

I hope that results from all the pain will be well worth the efforts.

Take care
