Without disputing the comments about Sigma's software abilities, it seems that those two Sigma cameras, for all their shortcomings, are growing on their users.
But Sigma has a (well more) big problem(s), I went to my store today, where I picked the FZ200. The same store that a few years ago was kind enough was kind enough to do not one but two swaps on unsatisfying 12-24mm lenses (the third one is as good as I want it to be). Since I am a good customer, they usually try to please me. You should have seen the incredulous look on their faces when I told them I wanted one of those new pocketable Sigma as well... Why would a person they knew until then as a perfectly sane buyer of L lenses suddenly be interested in what they obviously considered crap. They don't plan to stock it.
Also, when I exchanged my 12-24s, I was told not to worry, that Sigma was fully aware they had QC issues, on which they were working hard, and were very flexible in terms of exchanges. That was something like 6-7 years ago I believe.
But did I read again this year, in some Photokina coverage, that they had just decided to focus again on QC?
Dumb strategy (the recent pricing blunder), extremely poor software, an ever improving but never decent QC process, wobbly screens in 2012 on expensive cameras, etc... What are they thinking?
