Arrow Carl Zeiss AG joins the Micro Four Thirds System Standard Group

Four Thirds User (Fourthirds-user.com) is a sibling site to the e-group.

Announced jointly by Olympus Imaging Corp. and Panasonic Corporation in 2008, the Micro Four Thirds System standard has rapidly grown in popularity. Now, support for the standard is expanding with the decision of Carl Zeiss AG to join the Micro Four Thirds System standard, and the company is releasing lenses compliant with the standard.

Re: Carl Zeiss AG joins the Micro Four Thirds System Standard Group

This can only be good news, and I trust it will encourage Olympus to continue to develop more advanced m4/3 bodies. I presume CZ and Schneider wouldn't be joining the Group without some sort of insider knowledge on camera timelines?

Re: Carl Zeiss AG joins the Micro Four Thirds System Standard Group

This certainly bodes well for mtf as most lens companies tend to only support what they consider the most popular mounts (profitable), you only have to look at the likes of Tamron and there choice of selectivley supporting only the most profitable brands in term of quantity and ignoring the rest.

This should be getting Canon and Nikon worried.
