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

It looks like there is an additional adapter-section for the HDMI and USB-C port fitted on the EVF. The materials are not the same as on the EVF.

Likely to make it backwards compatible with the current fp. If you look at the frontimage there is no way the EVF with this section can fit that snug with the new fp L. The section with the ports protrudes to much to the rest of the EVF, which has the actual curved ends to fit the fp-L, as can be seen in de frontimage.

Probably Sigma could have altered the innerts of the fp-L on this side?

I don't think so, but the entire section with the ports can apparently slide a bit, along with the button behind the USB-C connector. Presumably to simplify the process of fixing it with the screw.

There is also something strange with the, what looks like a, sliding latch for the HDMI-port on the EVF. It can't slide, because there is no room for it above, because of the USB-port door. So is it just a rubber cover?

The "HDMI Cover" area is in order to place the rubber HDMI cover that you need to remove from the fp in order to fix the EVF. It's the same with the current hotshoe add-on.
