In another sign that the Micro Four Thirds (MFT) standard is increasing in popularity, news has broken that the German lens maker Carl Zeiss has signed up to be a member of the MFT System Standard Group, along with Schneider Kreuznac. This means that the company will soon be making lenses that are directly compatible with Olympus and Panasonic’s camera standard. While it’s true that you could probably get adapters to get non-supported lenses working on the cameras, it’s always good to see specific hardware being churned out. Sounds like a win for MFT fans out there.
