Share

leica
Good morning,

now we have a more clear and reliable vision over Leicas position in relation to the MicroFourThirds world. We thought it is time for a small rumor summary:

(FT5) Leica has no plan to produce a MicroFourThirds camera (multiple sources confirmed that)
(FT4) Panasonic will produce lenses using the Leica “brand”. The quality of the lenses will be approved by Leica (multiple sources confirmed that)
(FT3) The first Panasonic lens with Leica quality should be the 30mm 1.4 (one sources confirmed that)
(FT4) Leica has no plan to release a self produced MicroFourThirds or “normal” FourThirds lens. (multiple sources confirmed that)

    a 30mm lens as the first prime !!! let’s hope that this is not the case . sounds like a really stupid choice
    too long for a normal lens , too short for a portrait lens
    They should focus for a 40 to 45mm for a portrait lens
    or a 12mm if they want to get a wide angle lens
