Sigma SD9 price and availability announcement
Just saw this on dpreview. Sigma UK has a press release about the SD9 with Foveon sensor. It'll retail for $1800 (USD) and be available at the end of October.
However, with a 1.7x FOV crop and only taking Sigma SA mount lenses, the SD9 may be still born....

Oh, I don't know. From the X3 buzz and the folks who would buy the latest cool camera if Rubbermaid built it, I think it will sell fine for a while. The key will be the reviews.
If the camera is slated to ship in October, then the reviewers should have cameras to study now. It will be very interesting to see what the camera can really do. The pricepoint says Sigma isn't expecting the performance to be any better than the competition. I don't think they wanted to secure the position of cheapest DSLR, but that's where they've landed.

I will try to move this thread over to the "Other Systems Forum".
I should warn you that previous attempts of mine to move threads make them disappear.
Have a great time :-)
