It is not a secret that sooner or later Olympus will make a Micro Four Thirds camera that will be on par with the best Olympus Four Thirds camera (which currently is the E-5). But what will happen with Four Thirds lenses? They do not focus as fast on m43 camera as the new m43 lenses. The answer is coming from a new Olympus patent. It discloses an adapter that has built-in lenses. Those lenses will help Four Thirds lenses to have a much faster contrast autofocus. You can read a google translation of the Japanese patent at Egami (Click here).
It’s quite a complex design and It is up to our expert readers to understand the tiny technical details. My work now is to try to get some info about the Olympus PRO m43 camera that will replace the E-5…maybe next year?
