It is really quiet on the MicroFourThirds front. We received rumors about the next Olympus MFT camera but we need some time to double-check the infos we receive. FourThirds rumors are completely on hold until Olympus strategy will be more clear.
But as I told you previousely there will be soon new mirrorless cameras from the competition.

SAMSUNG
K-rumors learned from his own sources that Samsung signed a partnership deal with Schneider.
This are details of the deal:
1) Schneider reissues $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($sel != '1')
{?>M42 Lenses design with NX mount, new coating and construction.
2) Expect the release of four new Schneider lenses during the next months.
3) Those lenses would be designed by Schneider but built in Korea by Samsung/Optron-Tech with Schneider supervision and quality control.

SONY
SonyAlphaRumors reports that two Sony mirrorless cameras will be announced on late May. The new system will be called NEX.

I am curious to know what the big ones (Nikon-Canon) want to do….
