Sony says they want to make it better than MicroFourThirds!

Sony officially told in an interview at that they will develop their own mirrorless system and that it will be better than the current Olympus and Panasonics MicroFourThirds solution.

Yann Salmon-Legagneur, Sony’s Marketing Manager for Digital Imaging (Europe) told us that ‘of course’ Sony is interested in Micro Four Thirds, but ‘not the format itself, but the products that [are] being launched’. Recent Micro Four Thirds cameras from Olympus and Panasonic have ‘moved the industry’ he said.

Olympus and Panasonic shouldn’t be scared, because:

a) Olympus and Panasonic are the only one for now to have such a system for REAL now!

b) Because in one or two year when Sony will effectively unveil such a system Panasonic and Olympus will already have a lot of experience, lenses, and probably better tecnology.

Panasonic Lumix GF1 SLR-Edition ;)


Click on picture to enlarge

I received following picture and infos from “Reality Scanner”. He writes:

“have a look a my little experiment:
Lumix GF1 with Leica Visoflex and Elmar 3.5/65 mm Macro

P.S.: I attached the Visoflex with the Lumix micro-FourThirds-Leica-M-Adapter.
Regretably the release-lever of the Visoflex does not meet the GF1 release button. for taking photos you have to arrest the mirror flipped up.”
