Doesn't seem like they have been out long at all.  Adorama seems to have them at $800, which I think is extremely competitive with Coolpix A, Ricoh GR and Fuji and Sony APS-C sensor mirrorless cameras.  It's hard to imagine a new sensor and I don't expect Sigma to bring on new resources to improve the camera's non-sensor/non-lens infrastructure.

Sigma seem to be focusing on new lenses right now and I believe its first priority beyond lenses should be a more modern flagship camera-Live View, etc.  Even if one prefers an OVF for most shooting, Live View is wonderful for working on a tripod.
