It has since added E-300, E-500 and E-330 camera bodies to the system, and has expanded the Zuiko Digital lens line-up to include 15 lenses specifically designed and developed for digital photography. Sigma Corporation began introducing Four Thirds System lenses in October 2004, and currently offers three lenses, with more scheduled for release in the future. In addition, Panasonic is developing a camera body and lenses based on the FourThirds System standard, and is planning to introduce these products this year.

FourThirds System - Standard for digital SLR cameras
The participation of Leica Camera AG will accelerate the proliferation of FourThirds System products and allow a wider range of customers to enjoy the unique FourThirds System advantage of using camera bodies and lenses produced by different manufacturers. In addition, Leica Camera AG’s outstanding brand value, unique tradition, and cutting-edge optical expertise are expected to add powerful momentum to widespread acceptance of the FourThirds System in the future. As one of the original proponents of the FourThirds System standard, Olympus will continue to promote its widespread acceptance and to encourage other manufacturers to participate in this important new open standard for the digital age.
