Where have all the used DP Merrills gone?

I'm a big buyer and seller on that popular internet auction website.  In the last few weeks I've not seen many DP1M, DP2M and especially DP3M cameras for sale on this popular auction website.

Does that mean owners are happy with their DPM cameras and are holding on to them?  I've got two of them and am looking to add a third (DP3M), but will probably end up buying a new one because used ones just aren't available.

Not sure why you would want to buy used now.

The DP3 is $100 less than the other two and comes with a four-year warranty (US, longer in Canada, from what I've heard). Those are compelling reasons to just order it new. I also want one, but am not in the US right now, so I'll have to wait.

Correction: The DP1M is also $899.

Well I might well be letting go of my DP1M though I'd prefer not to use the said auction site if possible. It is a fine camera but I think that I will stick with the previous generation DP cameras and may yet buy an SD15!!

Henry's in Toronto sells the DP3M for $799.CAD as a special order.  They are a good store.

Great price, and don't Sigma products get a really extended warranty in Canada? (nt)

Canadian warranty just one year.  USA warranty 4 years.
