I've been thinking of buying a DSLR for a while now but since I've been doing a bit of external consultancy of late the next few months is definately the right time to buy (definitely need to make a few tax-deductible purchases if I don't want the Government keeping all my money). Now firstly, I'm different to most people in that whatever I buy will in fact be spending most of its time bolted onto the side of a Zeiss Epityp 2 microscope. However I am also interested in something which can replace my old Fuji S5500 for when I'm in the mood for trying to take some good "arty" photos (also have a Fuji J15 for day-to-day point and click photos). I've been interested in the Sigma SD14 for a while now for 2 reasons, firstly the fact that the IR cut filter is readily removeable, and secondly that it claims to offer far better performance in situations where only a single colour may be present (as is often found with microscopy). Only thing I didn't like about the SD14 was the apparent lack of remote view/capture, although some stuff I've found on the internet seems to suggest that this was corrected with a later firmware update (though other sites claim this is false). Just wondering if anyone out there has had a chance to play with the newer SD15 model and could give me a clear answer as to whether it can be operated remotely via a PC or not (again there seems to conflicting evidence as to whether this is possible or not). I'd also be interested in any opinions as to how this camera works for "normal" photography (ie not through a microscope) and whether there's any other DLSR options I could/should be looking at. Keep in mind though that for me a high degree of IR sensitivity is essential, since I'm currenly working on something which requires transmitted IR microscopy (using a B+W security camera at the moment, but definitely need greater resolution). Oh and also interested in what sort of lenses I should look at buying. I'm interested in something that would be good solely for macro work, as well as something that would be good for both landscapes and specific objects in front of a landscape (ie photographing my car or bike in picturesque locations). My preference would be to stick with Sigma lenses, but I would consider anything else that fits.
