Greetings Sigma Fans, Me being one A very big fan

So why did Sigma put out a camera with a Sony Bayer sensor? Why, why why?? Then they added insult to injury by putting a heavy AA filter on the SONY SENSOR so it softer than the Sony and has less features than the Sony for close to the same price???? Ya, go figure. Then the price, there's a lot of bayer sensor cameras out there to choose from for less. Are they trying to go out of business??? A Foveon 1.2 crop or 1.3 crop factor in a FP body with a EVF tilt screen and pop up flash would do just fine, it would be great, say for around $1200 USD or less.

By the time I buy a FP with a EVF I can buy a Panasonic, Fuji, Nikon Z or a Sony A7r for less without a AA filter.

Food for thought or why is my brain eating itself over this?? I can use an adapter for my SA mount lenses to the FP or the Sony.

Thank you

Have Fun

I've puzzled over the same thing. It's certainly not a camera I'd ever buy.
