Re: What the "L" is for ...

Scott, there may have been an error in the photorumors article. The Nokashita tweet at https://twitter.com/nokishita_c/status/1372070698395439110 says:

It seems that SIGMA fp L will be announced at "SIGMA STAGE Online" scheduled around 21:00 on March 23rd. In addition to the previous accessory, the AC adapter "UAC-21" and the USB cable (Type-C on both ends) "SUC-41" should also be announced. Is the suggested retail price of EVF-11 75,000 yen + tax?#噂

There is no price for the camera in the tweet.

Sorry, but there is no way that rumor is true. They're saying it will be 75,000 yen, and that's about $675. That would be about a third the price of the current fp. If Sigma sells them at that price they will fly off the shelves like crazy!

If it has an APS-C sensor, then maybe then the rumor could be true. If that were the case, the camera could be even smaller than the fp, which might be why it is called the L (for "little" or "light").
