Sigma L-Mount Body and Lens Roadmap

It’s going to take Sigma until 2019 to release their Foveon L-mount Full Frame sensor due to research delays, but the sensor is just about finished today. Sigma plans for the sensor to have three 20MP layers which will give 60.9MP. Sigma will also go back to their 1:1:1 design instead of the newer 1:1:4 which reduced one of the RGB layers size to increase light gathering.

TSI Semiconductors of the United States is producing Sigma’s new Foveon sensor. The company is 30 years old and came from NEC. They will produce 250,000 wafers per month, which will be enough to satisfy global demand. The plant uses the Japanese methods 5S, Kaizen, Kanban method, etc…

We will see the first L-Mount lenses from Sigma in August 2019 along with the MC-21 adapter. Sigma will also support mount conversion too and from, SA, EF, F, K, A, E, and L-mount
