This is another product that looks really promising and exciting but could be killed by bad comments on the forums.
Already there is criticism about
why F4 and not 2.8 ?, well I tell you why, because if you want a compact 28mm equivalent that covers that sensor without vignetting it has to be about twice as wide, that's why. How often do we shoot at 2.8 with a compact camera ?
Too expensive... Sigma have not announced the price as yet, but some feel that they have to get in first (should be about $800US,less for street price, BTW)
The lack of built in view finder
Separate hood, etc.
What about the good points ?
I for one, liked the pictures that the SD10 produced, we printed several A3 shots and they look very nice indeed. Most could not get passed the 3.4MP sensor and the mount, never mind the pictures. Not for sport enthusiasts, but great for portraits and nature shots.
The DP1 has 40% more pixels than the SD10, I would expect A3 enlargements good enough for an exhibition.
