It's been a long time since we first saw the Sigma SD15 - all the way back in September 2008, in fact - and the DSLR has only just managed to get a price tag and release date.  According to Sigma, the SD15's specs are little changed to what we first saw all those months ago, with a 14-megapixel Foveon X3 direct image sensor consisting of three 4.7-megapixel layers that individually capture red, green or blue light.

There's also a 3-inch LCD display and the company's True II image processor as found on the Sigma DP-series of cameras.  A 77-segment AE sensor and AFE (Analog Front End) round out the main specs, and images are saved to SD card.

The Sigma SD15 will apparently arrive on June 25th 2010, but the price has risen in the intervening period.  Having initially been expected to drop at €899 ($1,082), the SD15 now has an MRSP of €1,199 ($1,443).
