Hear Hear folks: Olympus promises to launch many new MFT cameras and lenses in 2020

Well it doesn’t sound like Olympus is going to kill his camera business folks!

Masanori Sako from Olympus clearly stated at Photorend that the rumors about them shutting down the camera business are wrong:

Some people thought that Olympus was planning to reduce or even close its imaging business, but that is not the case. Imagery continues to play an important role in the business, by being at the forefront of technologies or innovations. We will therefore certainly maintain the imaging activity as an important part of Olympus society. The rapid pace of technological development could help accelerate certain developments in medical devices or life sciences. The photo division is also our public face, and contributes to the fact that many people know about Olympus, which should promote the presence of the brand.

And for 2020 they have big plans:

Our objective in 2020 is to stabilize and strengthen our position on the market. To achieve this objective, we are actively carrying out marketing activities and have also set up a roadmap of interesting products. We will continue to develop future technologies for photographers and videographers, such as new cameras and new lenses in 2020.

Is the 108 Megapixel Samsung S20 Ultra really batter than the Olympus E-M5 Mark III ?

Is this smartphone really as good or better than a Micro Four Thirds camera?

Robin Wong writes:

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra boasts one of the best, if not the best camera in smartphones today. The S20 Ultra features 108MP main camera that has F1.8 lens and is optically stabilized. I managed to get my hands on a loaner unit from Samsung Malaysia and I thought why not make a quick comparison test against my own trusty Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III? I am genuinely curious to see how far has the smartphone consumer imaging technology has improved and what the gap is between a smartphone best camera versus a Micro Four Thirds system. Will the 108MP with advanced computational photography tricks win the battle?
