    Good to see more companies interested in making lenses for this system. It will open up a lot of possibilities and bring in healthy competition as well.

    Oh... some inexpensive third parties! This is all good... Tamron and Tokina do make some good stuff. I still use nothing but Kenko Pro-1 for my filters (granted, I hardly use filters).

    I never knew it was "Kenko Tokina." But it'll be nice to see some more lens options. Hopefully.. good options and not just more kit lens rehashes =(

    Sweet I was just searching for smart extension tubes for m43 the other day. I guess I will have to wait a little bit.

    Positive news indeed, especially now that Sigma have recently announced their first M43 lenses. Increased choice can only see the system becoming a stronger force in the market place.

    I hope Kenko means we'll get extension tubes finally! I use my EF mount Kenko tubes a LOT.

    I also hope to see genuinely compact lenses, not just large lenses converted to M43. There are few holes left in the M43 lineup that would be adequately plugged by a giant FF lens.

    How about mirror lenses???

    Tokina has just launched a 300mm f6.3 mirror lens for m43 according to dpreview.
