Last week Olympus 2019 financial results reported a big loss in the imaging business which has largely to do with the closure of the Chinese plant increased. There were costs associated to the transfer from China to Vietnam and Olympus also could not release new products because of that move.

Some news organization recently casted doubts about the possibility that Olympus will continue their imaging business. But at the Olympus financial report press conference President Takeuchi stated that the imaging business is “an important business that supports the optical technology of Olympus“.

Panasonic interview at Dpreview: The Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7 “is coming soon”

Share

Dpreview had a chat with Panasonic engineers and here are some info:

Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7:

We’re developing the 10-25mm F1.7 lens for Micro Four Thirds, that’s coming soon.

MFT verus S lenses:

Compared to MFT lenses the new S lenses have a newly-developed double focus system and an ultrasonic assist system

About the MFT and S system development:

of course we are developing both S-series and G-series at the same time. We have optimized our human resources internally so that we can develop both S series and G series to the highest standard.

About a possible video oriented S camera:

In the future, we’d like to consider the users’ needs: it’s open to users’ feedback.

MFT vs S when it comes to video:

Image stabilization and overheating will be less of an issue, compared to full-frame sensors.

Dpreview editors got the impression that “For now, at least, it seems that Panasonic sees the GH series as its main video/stills camera platform.”

Time to get the new GH6 folks :)
