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.”

Updated-> fake ricoh image?

Sorry guys if I post a Ricoh rumor :) I received it few minutes ago from one of our 43rumors readers. Anyway I believe this will interest you. If true Ricoh will become a more serious MicroFourThirds competiton:

I am from Hong Kong and saw this Japanese magazine, and was very shocked with the front cover and want to share with you guys. Here is the link:

Thanks Khen C.!

UPDATE: it seems to be a well done Phtosohop work. Also probably fake…
