Micro Four Thirds is dead…long live Micro Four Thirds!
The MFT system is now five years old and despite all the strong competition from Sony, Nikon, Canon, Samsung and others it is still the most popular and complete mirrorless system. And the group of companies supporting it just became bigger with the entries of Blackmagic Design Ltd, JK Imaging Ltd, Photron Ltd, SVS-VISTEK GmbH, View Plus Inc. (Source: Olympus Japan). The one you know best is certainly Blackmagic while JK Imaging shake the last week with their announcement of a Kodak branded MFT camera.
Enough talking…what about real new products? Olympus is rumored to release a new semi professional MFT camera and a new fast zoom for Spring. And the upcoming CP+ show is not the place Olympus has choose to announce it. So sleep well these days, there will be no amazing announcement yet as Panasonic, Samsung, Canon and maybe Sony too will announce new stuff in March-April only.
