Re: 10th Anniversary of Micro Four Thirds



This was in June 2008, visiting Panasonic Lumix in Japan for the first revelation of Micro Four Thirds. The person on the far left is dpreview's founder, Phil Askey.

We were shown a very primitive engineering sample, plus bits and pieces still on exposed circuit boards. I remember thinking - wow, the viewfinder technology alone was a huge step forwards. And also - Panasonic, not Olympus, is driving this!

Keeping this under my hat for three months wasn't at all easy!

I still have my Lumix G1 - never going to sell that!
