German photo lens maker Schneider-Kreuznach has joined the Micro Four Thirds bandwagon of Olympus and Panasonic to promote the MFT system for mirrorless interchangeable lens digital cameras and camcorders.

“This standard has great potential. It simplifies and improves the options for compact digital cameras and offers an excellent opportunity for the industry as a whole, as well as for us as a lens manufacturer. We are working intensively on a corresponding series of lenses,” says Dr. Josef Staub, CEO of the Schneider Group.

The MFT standard has been developed deliberately without taking into account conventional lenses, cameras or sensor sizes. In this way, compatibility problems with older components are avoided as is the need to compromise when designing new components.

The Micro Four Thirds System standard maintains the Four Thirds System concept but focuses on reducing overall system thickness and size by aiming for a highly portable compact system.
