There is a thread in the Olympus forum on this issue. I wonder why so many people have high hopes of having a Leica brand lense on the 4/3 system by Panasonic. My opnion of this joint development is without Leica involved (as of now). There is no mention of Leica in a few articles I have read so far, and the "Lumix" branding is a Panasonic brand which they intend to extend it to the DSLR system. Unless there is any announcement of Leica allow or intending to work with Panasonic to develop the lense, we should not put oo high hopes on having Leica lense on the 4/3 system IMO.

Quick Question:

Does anyone know who bought over LEITZ/LEICA photographic factories and plants, and who built their factories just next to the LEITZ factories?

Hint: According to what I heard, ONLY the industrial division is still 'originally' owned by LEITZ.

If the information I got is true, then we would all know who's been producing the 'LEICA' branded lenses for Panasonic.

BTW, I love my FZ 10 lens and it IS a fantastic lens, but I've got no dis-illussions that it was ever produced by Leitz. ;)

Without Leica, Panasonic would have to depend on Oly lenses, which I think still not up to mark! Oly had used Canon IS lens for it's C2100UZ range. And I am not happy with that lens already. It would be silly to switch from Leica to oly....... No Canon or Oly lenses please!!!

Agree Sony and Canon have improved on its lenses over the year. Sony cameras are good, but storage media stink. Hope they would realise it and change.

Ah yes, my colleague owned one previously. Was surprised it has CF. Now my colleague upgraded to M1. Quite impressive though.

LOL, must be realistic. It is not about Panasonic wanting to switch or not. It is whether they can get to use the Leica quality lense on their 4/3 system.

Oh ya, Leica not into 4/3rd lenses. Wonder why Panasonic chose to go into 4/3rd dslr? Is it good system? Look at E300!
