Sigma missing from Studio Comparison Tool

Hi,

I just realized that all of the Sigma cameras are missing from the Studio Comparison tool.  Sort of.

If I go to any other camera review and try to select a Sigma to compare it to, the Sigmas are missing.  Same thing if I launch the comparison tool stand-alone.

If I go the the actual Sigma camera review first though, then all the others are available to compare to.

I'm pretty sure this is a bug, so I've e-mailed DPR.

You and everyone else dozens of times. Why they're missing is the subject of many conspiratorial theories, and will probably remain an mysterious as the JFK assignation, because it's unlikely dpreview will be telling us the real reason anytime soon.   But it's certainly not a software bug or it would be affecting more than just the two Foveon cameras.

It's not a bug - it's a feature.

Whatever the reason, it very effectively hides the existence of Sigma cameras for the majority of DPR users, I dare say.

There has been a rather convoluted explanation from DPR in this forum some time ago about this odd feature.

How about this link:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikon-coolpix-a/12

On my computer in the lower right corner the sole Sigma camera shows up as usual as a comparison model, unfortunately only the DP1 Merrill, but better than nothing.

The comparisons are no longer available when you go to the SD1 review. An oversight, I'm sure!
