The most successful cameras typically have a split of not more than about 3:1 electronics to camera. Canon 5D II holds the record, around 8:1. Nikon D300 carved out quite a following by going all the way down to 1:1.

OTOH What about the D3x? must be up to about 8:1 as well. (Oh wait Sony sells cameras with basically the same sensor for 1/4 the price, so did the electronics actually cost that much?)

If they wanted the SD1 to sell, Sigma probably should have put a Nikon or Canon mount on this camera and charged
