Re: SD1m First Impressions

The biggest issue for me regarding the SD1M is the lack of exceptional-quality lenses. The new 35mm, all the macros, the 85mm and the 120-300 are probably the only ones worthy of using with the camera. What is conspicuously missing is a high-quality wide angle lens. These are the principal reasons I have kept my 5D mark II; Zeiss 21mm, Zeiss 35mm, Zeiss 50mm makro, Canon 135mm f/2L and the Canon 70-200 f/4L. If there were equivalent angles of view lenses for the SD1M I would really consider switching. But for now, the SD15, DP1 Merrill and (soon) DP3 Merrill will have to do.
