I understand the Sigma 10D has a different type of sensor. Is it that much better than the one used by Nikon or Canon ??

I think my pic should give you the answer to that!

Yes, its far better in certain areas, but worse in others.

Its better mainly for its greater inherrant sharpness, ability to capture detail down to a single pixel wide, greater colourrange,lack of moire and a more 3D look and its worse for high ISO noise and lower frame rate...However, the pros heavily outweigh the cons.

I'm hoping to upgrade to thenew SD14 which isa massive improvement on the SD10 as its smaller in size, has 40% more resolution, is about 2 stops better in high ISO performance than the SD10, has one of quietist shutters on any DSLR, has a bigger LCD screen, has an illuminated top LCD display, has an easier to remove/replace combined dust protector/IR filter,isFAT 32complient (so it can useany size CF card available), takes a single, quick changeLi-ion battery (The Sigma BP-21battery is the same as the Minolta NP-400but its more expensive so most SD14 users useNP-400's), has a larger, brighter viewfinderand its even cheaper than I paid for my SD10!
