I guess the traditional belief about pros is that they only use high quality rugged kit from the majors. This is what you are citing, the "nobody got fired by buying IBM" mantra.

But, there are plenty of pros still using wooden view cameras, or niche alpa technical cameras, specialist pano cameras etc.  Pros use the kit they need to use for the job a hand.  If a pro decides a Sigma works for their needs, they'll use one.

There at least a handful of pros using Sigma that post in this forum and while they may be in the minority, I don't see them as imbeciles.

Don't get your nickers in a twist...I'm not talking about the miniscule handful of pros on here who are also Sigma/Foveon enthuiasts,  I'm talking about the other 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of dyed in the wool pros out there who currently use pro Canon cameras, pro Nikon cameras, pro Hasselblad cameras, pro Pentax 645 cameras etc.   Do you really think any of them would be stupid enough to throw their existing pro kit away in favour of the SD1M?   Maybe if they had severe brain damage after receiving massive head trauma after a car crash, otherwise, it ain't never gonna happen!


You're such an expert and so clever you should know that the item of clothing referred to above has a k in front of "nickers", therefore the correct word is knickers.

By the way you ran a campaign about the SD1 / SD1M pricing before with the same put down of Sigma the company, Sigma  management, Sigma cameras and Sigma users complete with the same and worse insults. Give it a break, it's just futile bile spewing from you.
