MFT lenses great news!

But what do they mean by E-mount? New lenses for the E-System, i.e. standard Four Thirds?

Intriguing!

I might be wrong (I usually am) but I think that E Mount refers to the Sony Nex range.

All these lens manufacturers jumping on the m4/3 bandwagon is very, very bad news.

For my wallet.
