Sigma Corporation today made the following announcements:

  1. Launch of Sigma fpthe world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless digital camera.
  2. Introduction of a newly developed high-performance lens series for full-frame mirrorless cameras. The first of which will include:

Sigma fp – The Smallest and Lightest Full-Frame Mirrorless Digital Camera

With dimensions of 112.6×69.9×45.3mm and body weight of 370g, the all-new Sigma fp is the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless digital camera. It is equipped with a 35mm Bayer full-frame sensor with 24.6 megapixels in a compact body. Suitable for everyday use by photographers of all skill levels, from novices to the most discerning professionals, the Sigma fp produces images that are of the highest quality, capable of supporting both serious still and cine shooting.

The Sigma fp is purpose-built with durability in mind. Its dust and splash-proof body make it ideal for long hours in various shooting environments. The absence of a mechanical shutter removes the potential for noise and shutter shock while increasing reliability. The Sigma fp uses the L-mount, characterized by a short flange focal length, large diameter, and superior durability. In addition to the wide-ranging choices of Sigma lenses, other manufacturers’ lenses can be used through the L-Mount Alliance with Leica Camera AG and Panasonic Corporation. With the Sigma Mount Converter MC-21, Sigma SA mount and Sigma Canon EF mount lenses can also be used.

By supporting 12-bit CinemaDNG external recording for RAW video data and 4K UHD/24fps recording, the Sigma fp is capable of full-fledged video production. Alternating between still and cine shooting modes is possible with a simple flip of a switch. Each mode comes with a specially designed operation system and displays, making it possible to concentrate on shooting in each mode, stress-free.

Pricing and availability for the Sigma fp full-frame mirrorless digital camera will be announced fall 2019.

Sigma High-Performance Lens Series for Full-Frame Mirrorless Cameras

Sigma Corporation introduced the following Global Vision lenses as the first in its lineup optimized for high-performance, full-frame mirrorless cameras.

  • Sigma 35mm F1.2 DG DN Art
  • Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN Art
  • Sigma 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary

Sigma 35mm F1.2 DG DN Art – The First F1.2 Large Aperture Prime Lens in the Sigma Global Vision Line

The Sigma 35mm F1.2 DG DN Art is Sigma’s first wide-angle lens with F1.2 maximum aperture for the full-frame Sony E-mount and L-mount system. The 35mm F1.2 Art enables artistic expression with astounding resolution and bokeh effects. It is ideal for shots that leverage shallow depth of field including environmental portraiture, weddings and on-location shoots. Optimized for full-frame cameras, the 35mm F1.2 Art features three SLD glass elements and three aspherical lenses including a double-sided aspherical lens that is optimally arranged in a lens construction of 17 elements in 12 groups.

The 35mm F1.2 Art is equally optimized for both still and video shooting environments. In autofocus, the large Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) gives the desired torque required to drive the focus lens group. In manual focus, the focus ring is driven by the focus-by-wire system where the optimized torque setting responds to the fine operations of the photographer. The aperture ring is also mounted with a de-click function, enabling seamless operations that is especially useful during video shooting.

The Sigma 35mm F1.2 DG DN Art will be available in L-mount and Sony E-mount in late July 2019 for $1,499.00 USD through authorized US dealers.
