The Sigma SD15 DSLR gets closer to reality, yet no closer to release

Much to our surprise, we discovered that we actually don't have any details on this blog on the Sigma SD15, so this is a good time to do a 'what we know so far' profile, since it is being (re)announced at PMA 2009 - sort of.

As you may recall, the Sigma founder started talking about it in February 2008, and in typical Sigma fashion, the camera is slowly but steadily revealed in a drawn-out and infuriating test of every Foveon fan's patience ;-) It replaces its closely-related Sigma SD14.

Key Sigma SD15 specifications
+ 14mega-Foveon-pixel sensor
+ 1.7X (wrt 35mm)
+ Sigma-mount
+ True II imaging engine
+ promises improved processing speed
+ 3" fixed LCD and OVF
+ not much else is revealed/changed
+ availability: unknown
+ price: unknown
+ listed at B&H Photo (can't order yet)
