Why do people always want something new that is tailor made to their particular needs? Only the rich can have such things. Sigma can't afford to bring out a new camera every year. I'm sure the SD15 is going to be the only affordable Sigma DSLR for a long time yet. If it doesn't turn you on get something else. From all accounts the Sony A77 is going to be the best thing since sliced bread in terms of price and performance. If you can't live without 46 megapixel Foveon IQ, save your money, buy the SD1 and stop complaining.
