The Sigma "fp L" has been added to overseas retailers for $ 2,499, the "fp L EVF Kit" for $ 2,999, and the "EVF-11" for $ 6,99.#噂

At $2499 it may be either an attempt to get big market share quickly or may simply mean that the changes are not as significant as hoped. I'm less excited.

The price is right about where I was hoping. Any lower and I'd be worried about compromises. Sigma has more reasonable prices than the other brands, and without any changes to the body (that I can tell) the money looks to be spent internally. An additional $600 from the original fp is probably spent on mostly the sensor and new processing components. The EVF is quite a bit of money, but maybe contains some interesting processing power inside it to alleviate the camera doing the work. Time will tell.

I suspect the EVF will have its own battery.

For me the joy of photography is in the prints I make myself.
