It’s official! Photoscala reports that Schneider withdraw the plan they had to release the three MFT lenses in 2015. So we will NEVER get those lenses! Actually the decision has not to do with a change regarding their specific Micro Four Thirds strategy. The company completely changed their focus. They will now move away from the classic Photo Lens market! They will stay in the market for Large Format lenses for Linhof, Alpa and Cambo and develop lenses for the Industrial and Cine market.
That’s bad news althaugh….Schneiders proposed MFT focal length lenses are already available within the Panasonic/Olympus lens repertoire.
