Sigma is fully committed to the new L-Mount Alliance and next year will launch a full-frame mirrorless system camera based on the company’s Foveon technology. It will feature a new 60.9MP sensor and will be capable of mounting Leica, Panasonic and Sigma lenses now being introduced under the auspices of the alliance.
The company disclosed more details of the new camera at a press conference which was reported on in detail by Digital Camera World and Photo Rumors. The camera had been expected in 2019 but Sigma has cited technical difficulties with the new sensor as the reason for the delay.
Sigma is taking a leading role in boosting the crop of L-Mount lenses which will appeal to Leica SL owners as a more economical entry to the system. Eleven L-Mount lenses have already been announced as you can see in this interview with Sigma’s CEO, Kazuto Yamaki.
