Ha ha ha!

Sigma remains in the news. Firstly, while there has been no change in
the SD1 camera's MSLP of $9,700 the company has pointed out that (in
the U.S at least) the retail price is actually $6,899, and some
retailers have started listing it at this price.

why is this surprising?

street price is almost always less than msrp, especially for sigma.

the only unusual thing is that sigma feels the need to point it out,
which means they are well aware that the price is ridiculous.

The marketplace will actually sort this out for Sigma. When they don't
sell at USD $7,000. The camera spec wise is a Canon Rebel, D5100 class
camera.

For that price, they should have provided a machined titanium body, or
something to differentiate it from everything else, aside from the
Foveon sensor.
