If I am correct, Sigma’s first DSLR was based on one of the Nikon bodies. Why they couldn’t repeat the same approach today? The Foveon sensor and the Sigma lens are really very good, but that’s it. They should just borrow, licence, buy, copy (steal :)) some good body of a reputable camera maker.

You're not correct. Where do you get your information from? Methinks you just make it up... Troll.

I didn't make up anything. I remember a Sigma camera based on the Nikon body. I just do not recall which model it was.

Don't think so... The original SD9 body is very much like the film Sigma DSLRs SA7 and SA9 ... I have a Sigma SA7.

Perhaps what you recall is, I think Sigma made camera bodies at one early time for another company, I believe though it was Kodak (?) Sold under Kodak name I think.

Never Nikon to my recollection.
