Image on top. The “Full Frame” OM-1 film camera.
In one year from now Sony will launch their Full Frame mirrorless system. I have absolutely no info yet if Olympus will get involved in that project. Sony and Olympus said that they will share their tech for future camera developments but there were never any talk about a joint adventure on the FF system. So it is highly unlikely it will happen but nevertheless there is a small chance. Sony desperately needs lenses for the system and the FF mirrorless system wouldn’t be a competitor of the MFT system because of the much higher price of the cameras.
And now, try to imagine a new joint FF system from Sony and Olympus. And Olympus making a $2500 Full Frame OMD camera….
I am curious to here your opinion on that!
