Picture of the Sony-Olympus collaboration presentation.
Oh guys! I cannot make a pass a whole year without to post an FT1 ranked rumor! Or not? So let me post one I got and that I am sure is 99% not real. Just for fun ok? (ranking explained at the bottom of this post)
An anonymous source claimed to know that Sony will launch a NEX-FF by end of 2013. And Olympus have been asked by Sony to develop and manufacture lenses for the new system. While it’s certain that Olympus and Sony will collaborate on the compact camera front I doubt Olympus has the necessary resources to make FF lens for Sony. But hey, there may be a day when Olympus will make FF lens (and cameras). But I don’t think the day is close…
P.S: If for some incredible fortunate reason the rumor would be correct than I would be the first to eventually buy a Full Frame Olympus OM camera!
