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!

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.
