I’m not sure who’s driving the Sigma SD1 trainwreck; however, this limited edition wooden SD1 is about as far from the tracks as things can get. As if the $6900 price tag for the Sigma SD1 wasn’t laughable enough, this limited edition wooden model will set you back €9,999 ($13,750 USD equivalent).
For about the same price of this wooden SD1, you could buy a Hasselblad H4D-31 w/ 80mm f/2.8 lens, OR a Mamiya 645DF w/ 28MP back along, 80mm lens, and another lens or two, OR a Nikon D3X, a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens and a few speedlights, OR . . . you get the point.
Too bad it’s only available in Germany, eh?
