Seems a PR person from Sigma UK had some fun coming up with the latest press release.
Everyone needs one of these.....

I like the 'optional accessories' :D

As a life long south paw I say it's about time someone made a left handed cleaning cloth. One gets tried of holding all tools upside down to use.

Was that press release written in one of those English pubs? It was a hoot.

Very good marketing trick. Does that mean it only works left to right and right to left, but not up and down and down and up? :angry:

The up and down and down and up function will be available in the "Mark II" model...due out sometime next year. :angry: :lol:

David,

In small print it says for up and down you must trun lens 90 degrees and continue with left-right movement. When Mark II becomes available, this will no longer be necessary. :lol: :P :angry:

Thanks Joe...I missed that in the fine print. Leave it to you to research all the details.
Sounds like a design flaw to me. Personally, I'm not buying one till they get the bugs worked out.
