    Well, it's now listed on the Sigma web-site, with specs an' stuff.

    24MP full-frame, Bayer not Foveon, L-mount, no EVF (or provision for a proper add-on one) and bl**dy ugly to boot.

    There's also a hands-on preview at the other site. ;)

    Interesting that it has a normal sensor with Bayer pattern filter rather than a Foveon sensor. End of their development of the Foveon or more a matter of convenience and cost?

    It seems to build on Sigma's fascination with quirky bordering on weird camera designs though....

    Can I predict that it will not sell well?

    No data on battery life - that alone would put me off

    From the ePhotozine preview: "The battery life is short, we took around 200 shots and then needed to switch to another battery, however, there are two batteries provided in the box, and you can also power the camera using a portable power bank, such as one you’d use to charge a smartphone. The camera has a USB Type-C connection"

    At least Sigma have the decency to supply 2 batteries...:rolleyes:

    Thanks, I am afraid I skipped straight to the tabulated specs. I must admit I am rather fussy about battery life and always carry a spare, even for the 6D (probably unnecessary)

    It's in the latest AP - all that money and not even a viewfinder, so presumably it has to be used like a smartphone.
    So why not also include the technology that makes it the first smartphone with interchangeable lenses?
    And then make jeans with special pockets too.
