(FT4) Kodak will not produce a MFT camera.

Good morning dear readers!

On early November Letsgodigitial said that Kodak could unveil a new MicroFourThirds camera in 2010.

We had the chance to talk with our sources and now we can tell you that Kodak will not make a MicroFourThirds camera. As reported before also Leica was close to join the MicroFourThirds system but they decided to go their own way.

We are working now to get more infos on Fuji’s plans. They will very likely join the MFT world!

Olympus E-P1 is the most popular camera in Japan (but not the most sold)

The japanese very popular website asked their readers to vote the best camera of the year. These are the results:

1. E-P1
2. 7D
3. K-7
4. GF1
5. K-x
6. D3s
7. GXR
8. E-P2
9. D300s
10. GH1

But real japanese sales rankings do show a different story. Take a look at the November 2009 sales rankings:

Interesting or not? It seems that a lot of people like the “concept” of MicroFourThirds cameras but not so many of them are buying it…
