Re: Sigma cameras suck, regardless of the arguments of the fanboys

The continued rant from Sigma fans shows their desperation to defend their choice of a mediocre camera. It has it's novel sensor that has only one use. DPreview rates the SD1 as 71%, not a respectable showing. Flaws of the DP1 are listed clearly in the DPreview of the camera. All the arguments in the world won't change the fact that Sigma hasn't yet learned how to build a camera competitive with the other manufacturers.

Someday Sigma may build a decent camera, but today it's not a good choice for many photographers.

I don't really want one of these Sigma cameras either, but I still am able to see it as a really specialty niche camera and as such it isn't really going to garner great ratings with criteria that's design to evaluate a more "all around camera." Is it that difficult to understand that there's a market for specialty type cameras? I see that as being a good thing... that the market is large enough so that all kinds of different photographers can get the exact sort of tool that makes the most sense for how they like to take pictures. if you bought one of these things and found it to be lacking for the kind of thing that you do, then I might be able to understand the hate, otherwise you're just hammering on and on with a sort of apples and oranges comparison between unalike cameras...
