It was way back in September 2008 when the world first got a glimpse of the Sigma SD15, and now the long wait for the new DSLR seems to be finally over with some release news and pricing.

Darren Murph of Engadget.com is reporting on a story via Slashgear.com that the camera should start shipping by the end of this month. Also reported are some prices that are around $1,310 for the body only, and a kit price of $1,528. These are estimated prices based on the current rate of exchange.

The SD15 comes with a 14-megapixel Foveon X3 direct image sensor, this consists of three 4.7-megapixel layers which individually capture blue, green or red light. Add to that a 3-inch LCD display, a True II image processor, 77-segment AE sensor and AFE (Analog Front End). Camera images are saved to a SD card.
