Olympus about Full Frame: “High speed, autofocus and performance is better on Micro Four Thirds”

Olympus marketing director Nathan Lloyd talked to Engadget and when asked about Full Frame the answer was:

“That’s not the direction we want to go, that’s not our core competency. Full frame doesn’t answer everything. High speed, autofocus and performance is better on Micro Four Thirds. We also have a compact and lightweight solution.”
