We’re told Sigma may be developing a Micro Four Thirds, mirrorless interchangeable lens DP camera with Foveon sensor.
The camera would benefit from the rather large MFT lens choice and mounting possibilities, as well as Sigma’s own optics (like the 60mm f/2.8 DN on the left). The company is willing to stir up more interest in the abilities of a Foveon sensor.
A few years ago, Sigma told they had no plans to make MFT cameras. So this would be an unexpected but smart (albeit late) move, considering Sigma’s fixed-lens cameras have a hard time gathering market share.
Providing good overall speed and swift AF, a Micro Four Thirds ILC would be less of a niche camera than the DP Merrills. Nevertheless, Sigma would have to come with a solid product to compete with The King.
Yet this is certainly not be be taken for granted.
