Tamron explores the possibility of producing Micro Four Thirds lenses

DSLR magazine wrote on their facebook wall that Tamron is exploring the possibility of manufacturing lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system:

Translation:

"Finally! Tamron begins to explore the possibility of manufacturing lenses for Micro Four Thirds system. What can I say? ... I told you so!"

The only problem with this rumor is that Sony is a major shareholder of Tamron and is questionable whether they will support any m4/3 lens development (Sony owns 11.08% of Tamron).

    First we will see APS-C mirrorless lenses for Sony NEX and Samsung NX. Tamron is designing 2 compact zoom and one macro:

    -Compact standard zoom: 24-50mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
    -Compact telezoom: 75-200mm f/4.5-6.3 VR
    -Macro: 90mm f/3.5 VR

    Those lenses will be similar, only the NEX version will be longer.

    That doesn’t make sense. If Tamron profits by it, then Sony’s 10% will profit by it. Only if you sincerely believe that Tamron would REPLACE Sony’s lenses entirely would it not make sense. If Tamron has entry-level or specialty lenses at a lower cost then no problem because itll bring in more users at the bottom.

    Sony wants to sell, doesn´t Tamron make lenses for other brands than Sony…??
