Sigma announces FP: The world’s first truly pocketable Full Frame camera

It was bound to happen sooner or later.... a truly pocketable Full Frame mirrorless camera would come along to shock our senses and wow our imaginations. Today in Tokyo, Japan, Sigma has finally announced the existence of just such a small wonder. The Sigma FP is a Full Frame 24mp ILC that is absolutely tiny.
Sony of course wowed the camera world with their RX1 line more than 5 years ago, and so a small Full Frame camera is nothing new, but that line is fixed lens and therefore a much more niche product offering. The FP looks more like a sensor with a body to house it, and of course sports the new L-mount from their alliance with Leica and Panasonic, and will thus boast compatibility with an array of terrific lenses.
Our intrepid publisher Dave Etchells is on the scene in Tokyo gathering all the key information for us now, so stay tuned as we'll have a full Preview of this exciting new camera coming very soon!
