What about a Sigma releasing a SD16 for the rest of us

Sigma has currently put themselves in a situation where there is nowhere to go with regard to a new camera, i.e. SD16.

A new APS-C 6x3 MP camera, based on SD15 technology, will not attract many buyers even if it is cheap.

A new APS-C 12x3 MP camera, based on SD1 technology, will be too expensive.

Personally I think they have to take an extra look at SD1 --- take half a year and make it cheap to manufacture - and then release a cheap version called SD1x - hopefully not cutting all that many edges - hopefully still 15x3 MP.

When this is done there is ample of time to plan for the even cheaper SD16 at 8x3 MP and release it 18 months from now.
