I think it is almost unbelievable that they would say in their announcement that to have 3 focal length options, consumers need to purchase all 3 cameras! Sigma has some great tech and ideas, but I don't feel they execute it very well.

Agreed. Sigma has been knocking it out of the park with its lens lineup. However, it seems Sigma's camera roadmap has never found the right path and some things seem to be way off the mark.

Today's on the go photographer wants a modular system, like the sony approach. They embrace rather than alienate: Use your existing lens line(with appropriate adapter) on any of the NEX line, or the new Alpha line replacing it and you are good to go. Compelling a photographer to have to buy all three must mean they aim to sell them for under $1,000 or so. Otherwise, they might look to wide to carry.

Too bad the camera has such mundane lens selection. As an architectural and commercial photographer I like the pixel count, but don't care for the focal lengths.
