You did a very good job of answering the question.  Without volume to spread costs across chips can get very expensive quickly.

I am sure Sigma will continue to milk the Merrill generation for another year, going forward though they really need to get a new image processor to go with it.  The dual TRUE II processors can barely handle the current sensors output volume of data.

If Sigma wants to move on to a Full Frame X3 they will have to deal with at least 2X the current sensor. Get ready for 100mb raw files.  Hello TRUEx3.
