Sigma issued this official press text:
Sigma fp to Begin Shipping on October 25, 2019
Pricing for the Sigma fp, the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless digital camera, will start at $1,899 USD
Ronkonkoma, NY – October 10, 2019 – Sigma Corporation of America, a leading camera, photography lens, cine lens, flash and accessories manufacturer, today announced that its all-new full-frame mirrorless digital camera, the Sigma fp, will begin shipping on October 25, 2019. The Sigma fp will retail for $1,899 USD for the camera body alone and $2,199 USD for the camera with the Sigma 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens from authorized Sigma dealers.
Sigma fp Key Features:
The World’s Smallest & Lightest Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera
With dimensions of 112.6×69.9×45.3mm and body weight of 370g, the all-new Sigma fp is the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless digital camera; it is equipped with a 24.6 megapixel Bayer full-frame sensor. Purpose-built with durability in mind, its dust and splash-proof body make it ideal for long hours in various shooting environments while the absence of a mechanical shutter removes the potential for noise and shutter shock while increasing reliability.
Dual-Purpose with Support for 12-bit CinemaDNG
The Sigma fp is capable of full-fledged video production, supporting 12-bit CinemaDNG external recording for RAW video data and 4K UHD/24fps recording. Alternating between still and cine shooting modes is possible with a simple flip of a switch. Each mode comes with a specially designed operation system and displays, making it possible to concentrate on shooting in each mode, stress-free.
The Sigma fp uses the L-mount, characterized by a short flange focal length, large diameter, and superior durability. In addition to the wide-ranging choices of Sigma lenses, other manufacturers’ lenses can be used through the L-Mount Alliance with Leica Camera AG and Panasonic Corporation. With the Sigma Mount Converter MC-21, Sigma SA mount and Sigma Canon EF mount lenses can also be used.

Today we try to vlog on the new Panasonic S1H with 24-105 f4. We’ll pit it against the G85 with new Leica 10-25mm f1.7. See what has better stabilization. We’ll test the autofocus, slow mo etc. See if it’s worth vlogging on a full frame camera or if it’s better to stick with the smaller lighter m4/3 system.
