Olympus has officially stopped production of its Four Thirds line of lenses, the company has announced.
At the end of the catalog in fine print is a note that reads: ‘Production of all ZUIKO DIGITAL Four Thirds lenses has been discontinued.’
This, of course, isn’t entirely unexpected. Olympus hasn’t released a Four Thirds mount camera since the early part of this decade. However, it still marks the end of an era.
The Micro Four Thirds system introduced a number of innovations to the interchangeable lens market, such as Live View.
