Poll: Panasonic-Fuji vs Olympus-Sony. Is that good news?


The Micro Four Thirds system will dramatically change with the new Panasonic-Fuji vs Olympus Sony partnerships. It’s too early to see what exactly will change. Some of you believe this is bad news because Olympus-Sony and Panasonic-Fuji will collaborate more in their own systems (X and E-mount). Some of you believe that Fuji or Sony may be involved in the MFT system. I “believe” that at least in the short and mid term nothing will change in Panasonic and Olympus strategy. They will focus on the MFT system. Panasonic will use Fuji knowledge to create MFT cameras with organic sensor and Olympus will get the latest sensor tech from Sony.

Anyway, I ask you…

What is your feeling about the new partnerships?
