Cheaper Prices on DPMs - What does it mean?
Mar 1, 2013

With 47st Photo placing the DP1M and DP2M on ebay for $799 opposed to the regular price of $999 and now Adorama following suite on their own website, why do you think there is a discount?

I can think of a number of reasons, but do we know if it is Sigma or the Retailers providing the discount?

If Sigma:

Could Sigma have new versions of the DPMs possible coming soon? Like a slight update for better battery life (could be new battery type) and/or a TRUE III processor that is more efficient.

Could be to stir bigger demand and interest in the DPM series with the DP3M coming out here soon and completing the DPM series.

Do you think the discounts are temporary or permanent? What do you think the reason is behind the discount?  Or am I reading too much into this?

FYI, Adorama Links:

http://www.adorama.com/SGDP1M.html

http://www.adorama.com/SGDP2M.html

http://www.adorama.com/SGSD1M.html

SD1M was also discounted from 47st Photo on ebay so I also included the link to the one on Adorama's website.
