    Awesome! But only the news that they are entring m43. I consider a 28mm lens engineering brain wasted. Should habe been 24mm.

    I’ll take Schneider optics before any of my Leica glass – that’s great news – if only to keep them up and running as a company….how about some FF 35 lenses in C and N mount??????

      Do Schneider make lensen for Leica M mount?
      I would like to now where you can buy them.

    • Mark

      They already do this…some tilt shift lenses I think in Canon and Nikon mount.

  • This, may actually get me to purchase a M4/3

    Seeing recently the list of photo/optical companies now getting involved in the Micro Four Thirds format just goes to prove that all the interesting stuff is going to happen here. I’m now real glad that I bought my Lumix G2. ‘The APS-C format is dead… Long live the M4/3 format !
