(FT5) A “rangefinder” company will release a MicroFourThirds product within few hours…enthusiastic

Share

UPDATE 2: It’s 10pm London time now. I was told that there are only 1 hour left!

According to three of our trusted sources a company (not Panasonic or Olympus) will make an nice new product for MicroFourThirds. That company is expected to announce a new product within few hours. The new product will be produced by a company that also makes rangefinder cameras (IMPORTANT: this doesn’t mean they will come out with a rangefinder body! They also could make a lens or an accessory only!!!).
My “feeling” is that it is not a camera.

In a (maybe too enthusiastic) statement one source wrote that “it is a product that 99% of you want and 20% of you will really buy“. But again take that statement with a grain of salt! The product should be announced tonight between 11pm London time and 2am London time.

We made a list of the most important current rangefinder camera producers:

Leica with the M-seriesZeiss IkonCosina-Voigtländer with the BessaEpson RD1 and RD1xKodak Retina – There are also Mamiya, Bronica and Fuji
We left out Nikon and Canon because we are sure they won’t make products for MFT! I don’t know if I missed mentioning other important companies…
