I hope they keep the pixel size and increase the count.

Those two summarises it very well.

The press release from Sigma do not hint at Sigma being able to get substantial performance increase from their sensors.

More pixels will give you more IQ when things go well, but bigger pixels will probably better mitigate the blotching problem.

Hmmm ... how quickly we forget the SD9 with it's big 9.12um pixels but limited to 400 ISO.

It might have been an earlier technology

Quite so Roland. On the SD10, they slapped micro-lenses on the sensor which raised the limit to 800 ISO (and 1600 'extended').

Later cameras benefited more from 'improvements' in SPP than sensor tech, IMHO. As you know, the SD14 was quite remarkable in that respect!
