With respect to the future of Sigma cameras, I find the recent DP3M model a little disturbing. If Sigma is going to bring out a series of non-interchangeable lens models such that a photographer's bag is full of DPs, who amongst us will buy into that strategy?

I don't see why it's not a viable strategy when each DP costs nearly the same or less than the equivalent lens for the DSLR of choice, and also weighs less and takes up less space.

To me the choice for most people would not be between a DP camera and some other camera, but between a DP camera and a lens.

What would the next one out be - a Fisheye?

You should add that to the thread I started.  I thought a tilt-shift...
