Re: The price of the SD1M is still way too high!

The Canon 7D can now be bought brand-new for just £609 (body only), making the SD1M (body only) nearly £1000 more expensive!!!

The 7D is also horribly out of date and so long due for replacement its painful so not an ideal comparison - the real point is what else used or new can be bought for the price of the SD1M such as Canon and Nikon fullframers (outdated ones or otherwise) . Thinking specifically the 6D and D600

I guess Sigma never cared a jot if they sold a single SD1 unit , the lenses are making them money and for most people (those who value Autofocus, auto aperture etc) the DP series is and always was a better bet , the glass difference being the point here .
