Panasonic and Olympus have joined hands to co-develop new digital SLRs using technology from both companies, according to a press release issued on January 13, 2005. The cameras will be based on the Four Thirds system spearheaded by Olympus and currently found only on the Olympus 5MP E-1 Pro and 8MP Evolt E-300 DSLRs. Both of these cameras feature a Four Thirds system CCD sensor made by Kodak, an innovative ultrasonic dust removal system, and a Four Thirds system lens mount that accepts several Olympus and Sigma lenses. Will the new partnership have Olympus switching over to Panasonic-brand imaging sensors in its cameras instead of Kodak's? And will Olympus finally be able to offer image stabilization (borrowed from Panasonic) in its future DSLR and compact cameras?
