SD15 no longer sold?
2 months ago

It appears that B&H is no longer selling the SD15 (it looks like Adorama has dropped it too). Sigma has it priced at $989! That sucks, because I think it never came down to $500. I wonder if the SD1 Merrill will never come down to $1,000 before it is discontinued. I'm hoping to get one new, but I guess I might end up having to buy one used some day instead. I think that sucks. $1,799 is just too much for me. I WAS thinking the SD1 Merrill would eventually come down to $1,299 and the SD1 Quattro would be $1,999 (though it might sit at $2,199 for a while), and the SD15 would stay around $799. I figured eventually the SD15 would come down to $699 and finally $499 before being discontinued, but I guess I was wrong. It seems to me that if Sony can sell the A65 for $499 the SD15 could sell for that much on close-out. I guess not.

I know I can get an SD15 used at KEH from time to time, but they were going for $500, and I didn't want to spend that much for a used SD15. I guess I'll stick with the SD14 for now. I'd really like a new camera though. Maybe I'll get that Sony A65, and be happy with a camera that has a fold-out screen and can shoot video too. (until I can get an SD1 Merrill or an SD1 Quattro)
