The 12-200 camera came out earlier this year. If we don't see any lens announcement by spring then we can start worryingInteresting observation. When did Olympus last release a Pro lens, or for that matter, any lens?
We plan to launch several lenses every year and, of course, there will be releases of lenses before the 150-400mm PRO launch in 2020. So, please look out for a more information about our forthcoming product releases.
More like someone with an agenda, or someone looking to generate more clicks.I think it's a combination of old rumours that someone rehashed into a new rumour.
MC20. Not technically a lens but falls under the lens category and only compatible with 2 Pro lenses.The 12-200 camera came out earlier this year. If we don't see any lens announcement by spring then we can start worrying
And then there was this Olympus Interview comment from April
If you have a read about Ross and my posts, we'll understand why. We don't care that this rumour exists, it's when it starts spreading like wildfire and consumers take it as gospel that it becomes a problem.
Well... It looks like people are even dumber one could possibly imagine.One should ask the question, are these manufacturers only targeting photographers? What other "emerging markets" or segments require in-depth imaging know-how? Example, everywhere you look you see surveillance equipment, all motorcars use some kind of visual driver assistance. The "future" medical industry rely heavily imaging technologies.
- See the Sony sensor sales increase and ask yourself where are all these sensors go?
- I cannot help to ask.....if rumor creators can eliminate competitors, who will benefit most?
- I also think all imaging technology companies are fully aware of the fact that it is not only us who like their imaging technologies.....?
- If you look at it like this you see how stupid these rumor creators think people are.....
When malicious rumours are generated & beat up & spread from site to site, I can't just sit back & watch it all happen without a response. That 'rumor' site that posted that 'opinion' site's opinion like it was almost fact & then others start believing & posting it too. That just shows the lowness of these sites for perpetuating such damaging (mis)information. There is a biased agenda or just self gratification in doing so (like that Tony guy).
I can imagine that in 2020-2021 Oly will release all products in development (to generate some money) and (in the worst scenario) later on they will halt any R&D on lens side. They might focus on m4/3 lens catalogue production which will again generate some money to a company cash box.Well we cant really know but Olympus have a corporate strategy that stretches to fiscal year 2023, in wich the imaging division remain as a crucial component to the overall business.
