(FT4) First Olympus-Sony partnership tech exchange (PDAF sensors for OMD).


Sony’s United States Patent Application 20130113982) describes a sensor with PDAF

Last year Olympus and Sony signed a partnership that will soon show his first developments in the camera industry. According to trusted sources Olympus will get the new generations of Sony sensors with on sensor phase detection AF for a future high end OMD model. And Sony will use some of the knowledge from Olympus to design a couple of A-mount lenses that will be released in 2014. I think that’s a pretty good news for both companies. Sony sensors are the best on the market and the partnership allows Olympus to get the best from the best without having to stay in line (Nikon and Pentax use Sony sensors too). I am working on the specs of the next generation OMD and from the early bits I got (still unconfirmed) there may be some small surprise and new tech we never had before in Olympus cameras.
