You are precisely correct in my opinion. "Premature" is putting it mildly. And I also agree that there is insufficient data yet to make the grandiose conclusions presented. It's beginning to sound like an agenda rather than simple observations; rathr a sledge hammer approach to introduce FUD into this launch.

I agree that the initial samples posted by Sigma more than likely don't do the justice to their overall efforts to finish the product the best they can. But after all, the posted samples were approved by someone high in the command chain so if they are posting half cooked material, it is their own fault. Remember SD1M initial samples? People formulate opinions based on available data. Majority of them know that the pictures cannot be judged on the merits of JPEG's and they indicated that waiting for the availability of RAW's is reasonable thing to do.

Just because something has been approved doesn't mean it was carefully reviewed.

Also remember how meaningless the samples were and discussion around them once the camera was out.  Lots of other people seem to be forgetting that.

Accusing someone of incoherence is the easiest thing to do if one has his own agenda opposed to the view of others.

Or, you know, actual incoherence.

The real question is: who screwed up the initial presentation and created this unfortunate debates?

That's a question more for managers.

Luckily we'll have cameras out soon which means resale files to examine, instead of just poking at others assumptions. Until then, the forum will remain an oven set at half-temperature.
