Do you think Leica took the wrong decision not joining MicroFourThirds?

This week Luminous Landscapes was one full of discussions. In short: LL asked Leica to abandon the rangefinder “mentality” and to choose the path of the new “mirrorless and interchangeable compact cameras”. The Leica M9 is selling well in amazon.com (it is under the most sold top20 cameras) . But is that going to save Leica in the long run?
And more important:

Would you love to see such a camera from Olympus and/or Panasonic?

A “skin” experience…

One of our 43rumors reader sent us this:

Just wanted to share my experience with the JnK skin for the E-P1/2 that you posted a few months ago. I ordered one in the textured red from his ebay store (

) and got it yesterday. Before I ordered it I was a little on the fence about how thick the leather is, but when I put it on, I was 100% impressed with it and with his craftsmanship! The skin fits perfect! and he’s presentation and packaging is very impressive! This was a great experience and well worth the money. Here is a link to my camera with the skin.

Your E-P2 looks really good! ;)

Nikon mirrorless system versus MicroFourThirds

Mr. Tetsuro Goto is the Director of Laboratory Research and Development at Nikon Japan. Focus-Numerique just published a lengthy and very interesting interview with him (in French | Google translation).

  • On Micro 4/3 & Nikon: “If we follow this type of equipment, we change our frame (mount). The new frame will provide new opportunities or provide access to new technologies and to use targets smaller and lighter”.
  • Large sensor compact camera: “We study this way. You’ll know soon enough.”
  • On EVF: “In the near future, it is possible that we will also use electronic viewfinders, but for now the quality is not there yet.”
