Plus they need to push online sales more. They're just not going to be carried in many stores around the world, but this is the trend with many lines of merchandise.

They seem to have good support for online sales via the US Sigma site.  Good specials on lenses at the moment.

1) Otherwise sales support comes from customer demand.  No one will stock an item for which there is no demand.

2) Many online sites are simply "feeders" to a main site elsewhere, and orders are shipped from a central location that is related to the original supplier or distributor. Many/most online mercahnts never handle goods.

Based on that Sigma possibly could do more, but at what cost to profitability?
