OM Digital and Panasonic share thoughts about the future. OM Digital says there will be “something” worth the wait


On today’s big MFT youtube event both Panasonic and OM Digital shared their thoughts about the future of the system. Here are some key info:

OM Digital:

  • We’ve tried designing an f/1.0 lens, but it’s hard to deal with the autofocus system.
  • We are developing a new kind of product family
  • There will be a product something worth the wait
  • PEN-F didn’t sell well…but a successor isn’t excluded yet
  • We will not go into the Full Frame market
  • We will not join the L-mount system


  • We are developing both MFT cameras and lenses
  • Lenses with 800+ range are being discussed internally

Fool’s day news :)
