I’ll simply conclude by saying that if the SD1 had been priced at about $2,000 I likely would have bought one. I find its image quality appealing, and though the last thing that I need is another camera and set of lenses, I find it capable of producing a look in prints that I really like. But unrealistically priced as it is, no sale.
