Save $200 on Sigma DP1 SLR-sensor compact shooter

Fellow ZDNet blogger Jennifer Bergen is reporting a one-day sale on the Sigma DP1 over at Amazon. For today only, Amazon is selling Sigma’s much-ballyhooed DP1 (which was the first compact camera to use a full SLR-sized sensor) for just $399--a good $200 less than you can find it anywhere else.

Amazon is touting it as a one-day-only sale, but since you can pre-order the newer Sigma DP2 at both Amazon and B&H for just $649, it's not such a stretch to think the DP1 will be priced to sell elsewhere before the DP2 becomes available in a month or two. (B&H, which isn't taking orders until after the Passover holiday, is still listing the DP1 at $618, but lists a May arrival date on the DP2 ).

The DP2 is essentially the same camera as the DP1 (with the same 14-megapixel Foveon X3 sensor that’s used in the DP1 as well as Sigma’s SD14 dSLR) but with a different lens and Sigma’s new image processor.  Rather than the DP1’s 28mm equivalent, f/4.0 lens the DP2 sports a 41mm equivalent, f/2.8 lens.
