So, if I wanted all three focal lengths (19mm, 30mm and 50mm) I'd need to buy three camera bodies. Way to go Sigma, it ranks way up there with your $10,000 SD1 camera.

On the other hand buying a body + really, really good lenses would cost you more than those three cameras combined.

And you probably would not have as good wide performance.

And you would not have multiple spare bodies.

And you would have to take time to change lenses while I'm just switching cameras.

And you have to clean your sensor.

And you don't have as compact a camera for any one use.

So to answer your question, a definite no at this time. Sorry.

No need to be sorry, no camera can appeal to everyone.  But there are many real advantages to the approach Sigma is taking.
