A long shot speculation: Olympus to join the E-mount system?

Share

Just recently Olympus published a surprising patent describing a set of new lenses designed for a Full Frame mirrorless system camera:

17mm f/1.4 (7 cm total lens lenght)
25mm f/1.4 (8 cm total lens lenght)
25mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)
28mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)
35mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)
50mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)

As you know Olympus has no such system yet. And in the light of the Sony-Olympus partnership it is not impossible to imagine Olympus to join the Sony E-mount system. It would certainly a very big news for the system if that would happen! There are three possibilities for Olympus:

  1. They will launche their own FF system (which in my opinion makes little sense)
  2. They could make Zuiko lenses (or sell the lens designs to Sony) for the E-mount system
  3. They could join the E-mount system with their own branded cameras and lenses

I hope point 3 comes true, I think Olympus would greatly improve the attractively of the E-mount system!
