(FT3) Tamron to make m4/3 lenses?

DSLRphoto wrote a facebook post which says that Tamron could soon make m4/3 lenses. The only issue I see with that “rumor” is that Sony is the major shareholder of Tamron and I don’t know if they really want to make the m4/3 sys

This is not earth shattering but there appears to be a shortage of 7-14mm and 45mm Panasonic lens.
I ordered them with Panasonic Direct and after I make the order they shipped the camera / 20mm but then told me the two lens were on Back Order. After going though a couple layers of people at Panasonic Direct I got a managers on the phone they were able to check all of their stock locations and they are out of both lens and do not expect more until late Sept.

My panasonic g10 kit arrived today. I took tripod mounted pics in low light for iso’s 100-6400. 800-6400 samples are also included with lightroom 3.0′s (another new toy) noise reduction, which I found impressive. The set with explanations are on my page here:

Overall I think I will like the camera. It will be the in the car always around camera. The camera is very light even compared with the gf1, but feels solid. The kit lens was a bit larger/longer then I expected, and I am not that happy with how is balances on my gf1. It fits much nicer on the g10. I think the gf1 will be pretty exclusively mated with the 20 1.7 and olympus 9-18 and when I need the 14-42 or 45-200 I will use the g10.
