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.

For photographers, the benefits of the rumoured 60.2-megapixel sensor with the new colour filter array are quite obvious – especially those who shoot landscapes or need to print huge.

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?

    I keep missing this, is it Foveon? If so, video will likely be less than great. And they’ve never had ISO variance down so likely will not be awesome there either. But I would totally rock a two FP set up, one for vid one for stills.

      It’s Sony sensor with sampling to 30 megapixels to look like Foveon regarding colors.

        There is no replacement for a true Foveon sensor. Perhaps the greatest sensor of all time when it comes to color, detail, and that 3D look. A wise man once said, it’s best to have a Foveon camera or no camera at all.

      IIRC the Sigma CEO announced some time ago that they had to go back to the drawing board for the Foveon.
