Sigma fp - opinions from stills photographers?
1

I'm revisiting the Sigma fp as a home for my adapted lenses. Currently I use the (original) Sony A7 for my adapted lenses and it's served me well. Full frame - compact/light-weight enough, good manual focus aids, decent high ISO, okay ergonomics.

But I'm traveling more & more and looking for something a bit smaller / more discrete.

I'm aware of the shortcomings of the fp for stills (broadly speaking - ergonomics, battery life, electronic shutter, etc.).

But I'm seeing interesting results from people with adapted lenses - such as the ability to store manual lens compensation profiles.

I'm curious to hear from anyone in this forum that uses the Sigma fp for stills - and specifically with adapted lenses. Do you regret the purchase? If so - what do you prefer for stills? If not - what were you using before / what do you like about the fp?
