Sigma SD1: Back to mental stability
After trying to sell their SD1 Digital SLR camera at the unreasonable price of $9,700 or 7,000€ or £6,199.99 (inc VAT), Sigma finally decided that customers are not completely wackos about the camera and just announced a much more normal price of $3300 (with a minimum advertised street price of $2200/2500€).
It may seem still too high, but it is in direct relation with the reality of the market for a rather exceptional digital sensor.
The only difference is that Sigma re-brands the camera as SD1 Merrill (adding the name of the inventor of the Foveon sensor included in the camera).
