New interview with Sigma’s CEO: no plans for a full-frame DP Merrill fixed-lens camera

Here is a quick recap of the latest Dpreview interview with Kazuto Yamaki, CEO of Sigma:

  • Sales in China are still doing OK because there’s a very strong online business.
  • Since the beginning of March, we're seeing a decline in sales in the Japanese market.
  • We’re also seeing a decline in sales of our DSLR lenses, so naturally we have to focus our efforts on the development of mirrorless lenses.
  • Most of the lenses we’re shipping of course are for Sony E-mount
  • The Sigma fp sold quite well at the beginning.
  • We can expect a range of smaller lenses from Sigma, with Art-series optical quality but more modest maximum apertures.
  • The development of the Foveon sensor has been significantly delayed.
  • No plans for a full-frame alternative to the DP Merrill fixed-lens camera.
