PMA Shout: More Support for Four Thirds from Leica, Sigma and Panasonic
PMA 2006: PMA has started with a bang for the Four Thirds DSLR system, as Sigma, Leica and Panasonic all unveil new products based upon the 4/3 inch sensor. New Four Thirds versions of existing lenses from Sigma, a brand new Leica Four Thirds lens and best of all the Panasonic DMC-L1, which looks unlike any other DSLR available today. So what do you think of this sudden increase in support for what has been up to now something of a niche standard? Will Four Thirds push on to gain a lot more market share - would you buy a Four Thirds camera? Or does the smaller sensor size mean that, for the consumer at least, Four Thirds will always be waiting on the sidelines? In a special edition of our Saturday Shout column, cunningly titled “PMA Shout”, let everyone know what you think about what has been a fascinating start to PMA.
