Sigma is no doubt working on a FF. I had expected the announcement this fall, but no.

This would be great but I seriously doubt that.

They don't have a lens lineup that would fit such a sensor and they would have serious problems to manufacture such a beast. Have you already forgotten the $7000 disaster?

The development process for such a sensor is expensive and Sigma does not have high enough camera sales to justify such a development.

Just my opinion.
