Was the Sigma SD1 price a typo?

Is the $9700 price tag of the Sigma SD1 a typo? Sigma advertises on their website a SD1 kit with the 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM lens for $7,819.00. The 85mm f/1.4 lens alone is listed for $1400 (street price is $969). I talked to a major photo equipment retailer today and they were waiting on some clarifications from Sigma on the price of the SD1 before they officially publish it online and start taking pre-orders. In fact, currently all SD1 kits are listed with a price lower than $9700:

Maybe Sigma wanted to just "test the water" and will come up with an official statement on Monday indicating there was a typo in the last press release.
