    Press Release:
    SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of “SIGMA fp,” the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless digital camera*. The SIGMA fp incorporates a 35mm full-frame Bayer sensor with 24.6 effective megapixels in a compact body, and boasts great versatility and scalability that allows mixing-and-matching of a variety of interchangeable lenses and accessories. It is a camera that is casual enough to take anywhere, anytime, and high-spec enough for serious still and cine shooting in the highest image quality, all in a robust and classy body.

    Regardless of the differences in shooting scenes and styles or genre boundaries between stills and videos, this new camera is set to expand the freedom and possibilities in image shooting and art creation further than ever before. A “pocketable full-frame” camera: SIGMA fp, is now available.
    *As of July, 2019.

    WOW! This looks incredible great for travel! Thats what I hate about my Canon 5d -> its realy big and bulky for a full day of hiking. A sony a6400 would be a nice option, but I like the fullframe...
    This camera looks like its perfectly tailored for hiking! =)
    Provided you don't need a viewfinder.

    Love the form factor, only slightly bigger than G5X II. Close to what I want, but just like Sony RX1-R II still not really right.

    I'd be seriously interested IF
    1. it had a good pop-up EVF built in
    2. and suitably compact and affordable L-mount lenses were available, some moderately fast "pancake" primes and f/4 zooms

    Also "more than nice to have" would be
    • hotshoe (without need for an entire add-on module) - in lieu of "cine/stills" switch and red record video button
    • Canon DPAF with Eye Tracking
    • Canon UI
    • ...
    • Sony sensor

    :D

    If I've learned anything from the Sony fanbois it's that all you need is a body that has a sensor with good DR. Lenses don't matter.
    There’s an easy solution, and I’m sure it won’t be long until there’s one available for the L-mount:

    People seem to be forgetting that it’s no longer “pocketable” once you have a lens on it.

    it could be pocketable with pancake primes like 24/2.8, 35/2, 50/1.8 (y)

    Will be interesting to see what lenses Sigma will bring for L-mount. Panasonic obviously means BIG and expensive. Not to mention Leica.
