Hello Y,all

So the day job is making sure professional cinematographers get well serviced motion picture cameras where we have some camera bodies costing as much as 250K. The lenses either in-house or from Zeiss or Cookes in Leicester are anywhere up to 20K each for primes and double that for zooms from Angenieux in France. Oh we also supply HD cameras with equally eye watering prices.
On the Oly front many years ago we purchased Pen FT lenses (half frame) that we remounted for cinematography and we used hundreds of the OM right angle finders as part of a pentafinder to put cinematography lenses on for recces. Other stills lenses used are primarily from Leica which are wide spread in the movie industry again remounted. All our lenses are tested on a 250K MTF machine, a T-Stop M/C and are projected to check for colour fringing, distortion & edge sharpness.

So why did I choose Four Thirds? Simple purpose designed for digital photography where more importantly than the camera the lenses are optimised for digital not film.
