MicroFourThirds now owns 20.2% of the japanese DSLR sales share!

In March 2010 MicroFourThirds has been able to expand the japanese DSLR sales share and now crossed the 20% barrier! One year ago when only the Panasonic G1 was available the MicroFourThirds share was 5.5%.
I don’t know if Panasonic and Olympus really expected to have such a huge success when they started the MicroFourThirds “project”.

Need for speed: The 75mm f/0.85 Leitz lens

I just found one single 0,85/7,5cm Leitz lens on Ebay (click here) You do not often see the lens on Ebay. I searched for some image samples of this lens on a MicroFourThirds camera but I didn’t find anything. Probably nobody used it on non-Leica cameras until today.

Some image samples on flickr (on Leica cameras)

According to his predictions DSLR sales will slowly decrease in favor of the new mirrorless camera segment. And the new Cellulars phones will eat the reduce the compact camera sales.

But there are also very interesting considerations about social network integration and video recording!
