    I was ready to buy an SD1 until I downloaded the six raw files and the Sigma Software. I can put out with an slow camera, no live view…….., but I can not put out with the delay of the Sigma pro while working with the photos. 13 seconds for white balance it is not acceptable and that is using a very fast computer. So, until Sigma brings Adobe on board, I will be using my old SD14 and either a Pentax, or a Nikon I will buying next month.
