Re: Bottom Falls Out Of SD1 Merrill Prices

Is this an official price drop?

I notice on the WEX site the SD1 is shown as having an official price only £100 cheaper than the D800 (!!!) although they claim it is on sale £290 off that price.

It would be promising if the price were moving down to more realistic APS-C prices rather than top of the range full framers with their very expensive imagers. The 24MP AA-less D7100 is shown at £839 and I would have thought that the SD1m needs to be under £1000 to be viable.

How many units of any camera brand/model sell over that price - not many I would guess. How many Sigmas get sold at £1850 in the UK? It must be homing in on close to a big fat zero, I would imagine.
