    It will be very interesting to see this one hit the streets and to be reviewed fairly as I reckon it should work very well with some of Sigma's best lenses.
    Even more interesting will be the price it sells at, they are going to have to price the body in a similar fashion as they price their lenses against the "other" manufacturers.

    Would be nice too if it has a removable hot mirror like the SD14 & 15.

    Hi Col,
    Where do you get your Sigma gear from?

    Hi PJAD
    Sigma cams & SA mount lenses are scarce on the ground in Australia :-(
    USA don't want to send to Aust !
    I recently purchased my Sigma SD15 & 18-200, new from Germany & DP2 from Nederlands at reasonable prices.
    With the imminent release of the SD1, the SD15 is coming down in price now.
    Cheers
    Col

    BTW Pjad.
    Sigma gear can be ordered through DigiDirect down near circular quay (from memory lane). It's on-line AND a walk-in shop, though I haven't walked in.
    (I thought they were a site sponsor here but I can't seem to find them???)

    CC, Image editing OK.

    Hi Col, Am,
    Thank you for the info on suppliers, I'll keep them in mind. So far for Sigma lenses I've been using DCW since they are reasonably local.
    Col, was it straightforward to get gear from Germany?

    Regards,
    Peter

    Hi Don
    Do DCW have SA mount lenses ??

    Germany, was very straight forward, just like anywhere
    Language is but a small problem. Google translate is your friend Just highlight the text & right click in IE8.
    They understand english, ($ is the universal language) but sometimes like to show off in their own
    Cheers
    Col

    I don't know if they'd have them in stock, Col, but they can order them. Here is their site. They are advertising and SD15 with 18-50 lens for some 1600 at present. (It was 1900 with a 17-70 lens b4 Xmas.)
    You know you're in Australia when you get vague responses about Sigma gear.

    Col, Am,
    What is "SA" mount, so I'm clear on it? Just checked out their site (DCW) and it appears that the only mounts they carry now are for everyone else except Sigma itself, which is weird.

    Regards,
    Peter

    Hi Peter
    The SA mount is Sigma lens mount.
    Sigma sell excellent lenses for most cameras. It just harder to find Sigma SA mount lenses in Australia :-(
    Cheers

    It is the Sigma body lens mount. Now just recently someone wrote (somewhere) that it is the same as a Pentax (I think -K) mount.
    O-hh! Here's where I read it.
    About 2/3 way through this Wiki paragraph...
    Am.
    Pentax K mount (PK) lenses can be fitted straight onto the SA mount, after the protruding AA lever and AA protector outcrop are removed, though the fit is slightly loose as the SA mount has a slightly bigger bore than the PK mount.

    Hi Col,
    That's what I thought it was, just had to be sure. It bugs me that not everything Sigma is readily here like it used to be. Not sure if I would venture out and try the Pentax mount, it does have to fit perfectly.

    Am, are the Pentax lenses compatible electronically with Sigma SA lens mounts ?

    Yes I feel the same way too.
    Hacking a perfectly good lens is not my scene, especially making it into a manual operated lens as well

    Really don't know, Col. I agree about the "hacking" part. I have an old K-mount lens somewhere, w/o a Pentax, so one of these days...

    There was a time years ago I would have probably done the hack thing, the nature of curiosity I suppose. These days I just want stuff to work the way it should, out of the box, unmodified, no hacking.

    Yes, I suppose it comes with age wisdom I think it is called

    What camera do you have Peter. Are you looking at going for Sigma ?
