Since Sony acquired the Minolta A system there were many dreaming a sort of comeback of some great Minolta lenses for the A (and now also E) mount system. But it sounds like Konica-Minolta doesn’t feel addicted to Sony at all. Recent patents spotted by Egami prove that they will indeed restart to make lenses but they will be made for the Micro Four Thirds system only!
I still hope Konica-Minolta will design some lenses for the E-mount system too. Why not make a [shoplink 20428 ebay]50mm f/1.2 MD Rokkor-X (here one eBay)[/shoplink] as E-mount lens? :)
