Sigma CEO: “M4/3 is a great system if you need compactness”

Sigma CEO Yamaki did express his love for the MFT system when Dpreviw asked him if the MFT will “be reduced” now that Panasonic joined the L-mount:

I don’t know, and I might not be the best person to comment, but I’ve seen many journalists using M4/3 system cameras here in Photokina. In my opinion, M4/3 is a great system if you need compactness.

We have a Big Fan :)
