Prime Time Crew couldn’t make it to Photokina this year because frankly we don’t give a shit and the more we shoot the more we learn that all the good shit was made thirty years ago.

Four Thirds: The saga continues…maybe

A good friend and ex Olympus rep divulged some information to us yesterday.  This is not the type of rumor we like to report on at PTC but we’re going to anyway.  If you’ve been waiting for some new Four Thirds primes, or other lenses for that matter, don’t hold your breath.  There are no new primes or zooms to be developed for Four Thirds at this point.  She couldn’t even confirm that they’re working on a successor to the E-3.  Olympus is too busy milking all it can from its new cash cow (MFT).   On the plus side she confirmed that a 50mm macro for MFT will be unveiled at Photokina.  Well, one prime is better than none at all.
