Olympus Corporation, Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd.
(Panasonic) and Sigma Corporation announce the publication of a joint
product catalogue that features the full range of interchangeable
lenses suitable for use by all Four Thirds Standard-based digital SLR
The joint lens catalogue is the first of its type in the industry.
Based on the Four Thirds Standard, all featured lenses are expressly
designed for the special demands of digital SLR photography. Because
Four Thirds is an open standard which, among other things, regulates
lens and body mount information, users are not bound to a single
provider for their lens requirements. This means photographers have the
freedom and flexibility to mix and match Four Thirds camera bodies and
lenses supplied by the participating manufacturers –
completely according to their needs.
A total of 24 interchangeable lenses are highlighted in the 40-page,
full-colour catalogue. Each lens is presented in a clear manner, with a
detailed analysis of all features together with numerous examples of
Distribution of the catalogue will commence in time for photokina 2006,
being held in Cologne, Germany, from 26 September to 1 October. The
Olympus stand will be located in 2.2, booth B 030/040, where visitors
can pick up a copy the new joint catalogue.
The official Four

launch of the catalogue.
