Sigma MIL camera to be announced in few hours? *updated*

This dpreview forum member claims that Sigma will announce their mirrorless interchangeable lens camera in few hours. Sigma has made a statement in the past that they are developing a mirrorless camera with a Foveon sensor. Based on the pictures, the new Sigma EVIL camera will have a M mount (Leica) unless there is an adapter. This could also be a DIY project, based on the existing Sigma DP1 camera.

Update: the original source of those pictures - this indeed is a DIY project initially posted on xitek.com.

      Could this be with an adapter?

  • zeissgit

    that looks like an adapter unless its a bulky mount like the Canon FD

      Could it be a DIY project from an existing Sigma DP1?

    I think this is bogus. It seems very unlikely that anyone would schedule an announcement for Friday/Saturday. It would get lost in the press and blogosphere. Early in the week is a much more popular time for announcements.

    Still, I hope it happens.

    fingers crossed!

    The source is 43rumors who clearly state this is a just a DIY by a Chinese photographer! More information can be found on this forum:

      Thanks, I updated the post. This one is busted!

    The handle gives it away. I immediatly started wondering why would sigma make so inconsistent handle design.

    • Artur Kozłowski

      I like the handle. IMO the new designs for most cameras are too cute. Why do they have to be so aerodynamic? I loved the angular toughness of a Canon New F-1 or Nikon F3, but that’s just me and my teenage fascinations…

  • Sloaah

    This is a pretty sick DIY achievement…

    I’d like to know more about that grip plate. I’ve seen it before for the Epson R-D1 and Leica M7-

  • sam shoots all

    well if it’s a M mount, then too expensive for my taste…Go D700 & E-p2!

  • Camaman

    So sre just the pics busted or is announcement rumour also busted?
    :-)
