Re: Lots of nonsense here

I prefer to believe Sigma makes cameras as a hobby.  I don't see it making any financial sense but I am glad they have this hobby.

As a "halo" product, I think cameras do increase Sigma's credibility as a lens maker, especially the DPxM series where the lenses are used to maximum advantage.

Sigma's hand might have been forced wth Foveon; use rights might have disappeared had Sigma not bought what was left of Foveon.  Just a guess though.

Also, I don't see any clear reason why Sigma could not succeed with their cameras if they used Sony bayer sensors, but that's just me.

I think we can be glad somebody at Sigma likes Foveon.
