I hope the FFF is nothing like the FP

Sorry but the new FP is not at all what I would hope the new FFF will be like.  It's primarily a movie oriented camera and as such I have zero interest in it.

First, I don't see the logic in making a FF mirrorless camera so small.  You will have to attach a FF lens to the camera and there goes all your effort to miniaturize.  Plus if you want a viewfinder, you need to attach that LCD viewer, whats the point?

Second I don't take movies and that feature is wasted on me.

Third the lack of an EVF is to me absurd.  I can see a camera with a fixed lens not having an EVF, but an interchangeable lens camera without one, weird.  The DP line is wonderful, but the lack of an EVF makes the camera a real pain to use in sunlight and to check focus.  Does anyone really like using an optical finder? Deal breaker.

Fourth, no hot shoe, for a still based camera this is mandatory.

I wish Sigma all the luck with this camera, hopefully it will generate additional revenue which can then be diverted to the development of a Foveon, stills based camera.

I'm hoping the new FFF will be a SD Quattro inspired camera, with IBIS, FF Foveon chip and better low light capabilities.

What do you guys think
