The mirrorless world continues its march to maturity and prevalence. That these companies have joined with their support is an indication of economic viability in this growing market—and in particular, the m4/3 format. For me as a user of the m4/3 format, this is great news. But until they “show me the money”, it means wait-and-see on the results. It means greater potential for enhancement, but until they announce product, its just a potential.
There’s lot of discussion on product speculation that could come from these companies, but the importance is that they recognize market viability.
