Sigma SD15 coming at Photokina 2008!

Among the dpreview forum discussions of the first Sigma DP1 review, there was a mention of a quote by a Sigma executive hinting at a new Sigma SD15 DSLR at Photokina 2008. The story at Amateur Photographer's Informer. Amateur Photographer created a lot of buzz yesterday when they broke the news of the Leica CEO getting fired.

The quote mentions that the DSLR will have the same sensor but will have "other improvements". Thus perhaps the closeness in the model names, going from SD14 to SD15. Amateur Photographer UK is a respectable news source, so this is more than just a rumor. But this is not an official announcement. We've all seen what happened with the Leica CEO making comments on future products.

Be sure to check our on-going Photokina 2008 rumors and speculations. This will grow over time, and become a giant post like the PMA 2008 rumors and speculations post, and Fauxtokina 2007.

This perhaps partially explains the recent price drops of the SD14 at select retailers, for example, the SD14 body only is offered by Cameta Cameras on Amazon for $600, while the bundle with the Sigma 18-200 f3.5-6.3 DC OS lens is offered by Cameta on Amazon for $900.

And for those in the USA who want to subscribe to Amateur Photographer UK, you can get it via Amazon for $229 for 52 issues (one year).
