Press release:

Tokyo, Japan, May 28, 2024 – OM Digital Solutions Corporation 1 and Panasonic Entertainment & Communication Co., Ltd. 2 jointly announced the Micro Four Thirds System standard in 2008 and have since been working together to promote it. We are pleased to announce today that Guangdong SIRUI Optical Co., Ltd. has declared their support for the Micro Four Thirds System standard and will be introducing compliant products to the market.

The Micro Four Thirds System is currently supported by 61 companies, including companies focusing on B2B operations. New products will be added to the Micro Four Thirds lineup in the future with the participation of SIRUI, providing innovative optical lens, lighting equipment, and other products that support shooting for filmmakers. The possibilities unique to an open standard will expand the enjoyment of imaging further.

As the companies responsible for initiating both the Four Thirds System and the Micro Four Thirds System standards, OM Digital Solutions and Panasonic will continue to develop and enhance the product line-up to meet the diverse needs of our customers.

I have a nice Sirui micro four thirds lens, have had it quite a while. It's the24mm f/2.8 1.33x anamorphic. This lens has the property, if you shoot photos at 4:3, the de-squeezed images are 16:9, the same as most of our monitors and TVs. It makes very good images. And of course you can shoot wide screen videos with the lens.

Also I recently purchased an L-Mount Sirui lens, a 50mm T2.9 1.6x anamorphic. It's a great lens, much smaller and lighter and more affordable than traditional full frame anamorphics. I look forward to what Sirui will bring to Micro Four Thirds systems.
