I've always found the convoluted history of film and digital formats to be intensely interesting. Re-use has always been a watchword. APS-C failed miserably as a film format, only to be exhumed, polished up and launched as a *very* successful format in the digital realm. 4/3 has seen a similar revival in micro 4/3 in the mirrorless age. And 35mm seems to be somewhat immortal, LOL.

That's a great story. Thanks for sharing :-)

Olympus, the last hold out, annocunced the end of Four Thirds glass production, having dropped all the cameras a while back. Article on Dpreview... https://www.dpreview.com/articles/9877975278/olympus-brings-down-the-curtain-on-the-four-thirds-system

You were the 1st, even before Nikon, that let me use all my old Nikkor glass and you spawned Micro Four Thirds, THANKS!
