... but, I agree. I understand the concept, but I've always wondered this same thing too - you can't shoot a camera body without a lens. So, that's a "must have" and I'd think would count as 'one' (setting the Consumer aside of this equation as we are not needed in essence). The body is useless without 'one' lens...

So where is Sigma when you buy a Sigma camera and a Sigma lens?
I hate when people ask me what I see myself doing in 5 years...... I don't have 2020 vision!
