The Sigma fp L was thought to have been getting announced at CP+ last month, but it turned out to not be the case. Instead, we just saw the new 28-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens for Leica L and Sony FE mounts. Now, though, a Tweet from Nokishita suggests that an fp L announcement is imminent. They say that an article with the title “SIGMA fp L First Impressions” has been added to a site that has previously reviewed the 28-70mm mentioned above.
L-Rumors, though, has heard another rumour from a couple of sources suggesting that the Sigma fp L will see a very weird looking sensor. It’s not a Foveon X3 sensor, as it still shows individual photosites for each of the red, green and blue pixels instead of stacking them on top of each other for every pixel. But it looks very much like the old Fuji Super CCD HR sensor from their DSLR days.
