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.

Native L-Mount
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.

Sigma FP will be launched on October 20

As promised by Kazuto Yamaki when he presented the fp, Sigma just published the 3D appearance data of the Sigma fp and its Sigma accessories.
The purpose of such publication is to facilitate the design of fp accessories by third parties and therefore speed up their release, with a view to creating as large an ecosystem as possible as quickly as possible. This is, pushed to a further level, the strategy pursued by Sony when they made the main E mount specifications available to third parties.
Available for download (without any prior requirement) tare .step files. STEP stands for “STandard for the Exchange of Product model data” a.k.a. ISO 10303. It can represent 3D objects and related information in CAD/CAM software. *.step files are recognized by programs such as Dassault Systemes SolidWorks, IMSI TurboCAD and Autodesk Fusion 360.
In addition to this official communication, an unofficial but well-informed source, photographer Kimio Tanaka, just twitted that the Sigma fp should be launched around the 20th of October.
Thanks Mistral!
