Panasonic says Olympus did not share their same Full Frame vision


Important: Please subscribe and follow our new to get detailed coverage about the new L-mount alliance!

Lesnumeriques interviewed Panasonic manager Yosuke Yamane and these are some of they info:

  • Eight years ago Panasonic had the idea to go Full Frame but at the time there were technical and commercial challenges
  • Two years ago they started to look for an alliance around a Full Frame platform. At the beginning of 2018 they approached Leica and Sigma.
  • Why is Olympus not on board with this? Yosuke said “we do not really have the same vision. Our directions are different now, on this format
  • The new AI autofocus system works on the question of “where to focus”. For example we use deep learning to track flying birds or human eyes
  • Panasonic has abandoned the smart phone project and there will be no follow-up of the CM1 (here on Amazon).
  • Panasonic does not think the smart phone market is a threat for MFT

Now I am curious to hear your opinion on the matter in the comment system and in this poll:

What's your opinion: Should Olympus have been on board with the L-mount alliance?
