SDQ-F in L-Mount and then ?

There are two possible outcomes of the next Sigma camera:

1. If Full-Frame sensor development stuck and they simply made a SDQ & SDQ-H in L-Mount but will have further investments in color shift correction for no-RF natural wide-angle lenses. In Bayer the low lens pupil means vigneting but in Foveon color shift.

2. There first SDQ-F will be made only in L-Mount and they made a SA-L converter similar to SA-E.

Independend from the above outcome the interesting turning point for the SA vs. L system lens is the first time L-mount/FE-mount onl ymount lens. Actual all Sigma FE lenses are also avaible as SA. So there will be in the future this triggering L/FE-only lens which require this new, proposed but unannounced, Sigma camera.

So for existing user satisfication it is of extreme importance to provide the SA-L converter. Then this is a bright future for SA users. A SDQ-F with the same pixel density have ~44MP after interpolation which will give a slight edge over the Panasonic S with 48MP, hopefully to less than 4k$.

A good question is if the more affordable Panasonic S 24MP allow to use SA lenses in video AF-C mode through the SA-L adapter. Interoperability is only proposed within L-mount. Today I could use SA-Art lenses with E-mount cameras.

Another thinking of this strategic move is that if the overall market is shrinking Canikon could be first encrypt there lens protocol in Z and RF mount. This would increase there own sale because third party lens sale dries instant. For Sigma this strategic move would be then be in a much different light.
