The Sigma fp L price has leaked ahead of announcement – will cost $2,499
The Sigma fp L mirrorless camera, expected to be announced at some point later today, is still suffering its share of leaks, right up to the wire. The latest, again from Nokishita, is a price for the new camera, as well as the EVF-11 bolt-on electronic viewfinder.
According to a tweet, the price has been added to overseas retailers lists, and the camera alone will cost you $2,499. Separately, the EVF will be $699, but if you buy the two together, you get a couple of hundred bucks off with a total package price of $2,999.
The translated tweet reads…
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.
Assuming it has at least the video capabilities of the original Sigma fp, it’s not a bad price at all. I expect (or at least hope) that it’ll likely exceed the abilities of the original, and the new sensor design should help to produce even sharper footage – in theory.
As I mentioned, an official announcement is expected from Sigma at some point today, so we’ll let you know when we find out more!
What would you expect for $2,499?
