New photo business owner Olympus has no plans to release full-frame cameras



Over the past ten years, Olympus has from time to time issued official statements that it has no plans to release full-frame cameras. As you know, the Japanese manufacturer’s photo business has recently changed its name to OM Digital Solutions and passed to a new owner. It seems that along with the assets, the obligation to deny plans related to full-frame cameras also passed to that.

Sigma recently held a presentation in which it hinted that a new member may join the L-mount alliance in the near future. This gave rise to some thematic resources to indulge in speculation that we are talking about OM Digital Solutions.

In fact, Olympus was invited to join the L-mount alliance back in 2018, but then the company turned down an offer that would have included full-frame mirrorless cameras and lenses for them.

Yesterday, during the live broadcast of the Four Thirds System roadmap event, a spokesman for OM Digital Solutions reiterated that it was not going to release full-frame cameras. The same position was confirmed by the second creator of the Micro Four Thirds system, Panasonic.

On the contrary, an OM Digital Solutions spokesman assured that a new Micro Four Thirds camera is under development. At the same time, explaining the discontinuation of the retro-styled PEN-F model, the manufacturer lamented that even if there were those who liked the device very much, on the whole it sold worse than expected.
