Sigma Germany has a current cashback promo, when you already own a DPxM, SD1 or SD1M, you get a € 240 discount on another DPxM. It brings the price of a brandnew DP2M or DP3M from about €750 down to €500. Runs till 09. August 2013.

Question, is it just for increasing DPxM sales or making space for new models

Yes, Sigma wants to boost sales of DPM cameras outside Japan (where they are selling quite well). As far as I know there are no new models on the horizon. For some reason they are targeting existing Sigma camera users. This makes some sense, but I think it would make even more sense if they offered a discount to everyone... or even reversed the idea and offered a discount to folks who have never owned a Sigma camera.
