On the german Ebay (Ebay.de) there is an auction of a lot of sd15, but this shop does only sell in Germany, not sending to other countries. But I see prices around 400 euro.

But last night I looked at photos from the Sigma Users Group and they pull me to the Sigma direction again. There is one problem here in Holland, the moment you have a defect the camera (My DP2s has dust on the sensor) has to be send back to Japan, that takes month to get it back.

My SD15 has been very reliable and I know I could clean the sensor myself if I really wanted to. The front-mounted IR filter keeps dust out pretty well though.
I wouldn't dare open my DP2 if it got dusty inside.

The sensor could be cleaned by other brand/workshops. In my first attempt when i got my camera i ended up blowing the dirt from sensor to the focusing screen when i sent it to a sigma lens worker (for canon/nikon mount) he cleared it up for me.

A few weeks ago i did it myself, this time i just did a light blow and it clears up the sensor nicely. The procedure is plainly written on the menu and easy to follow.
