There are now 56 companies (that’s right – 56 – not just Olympus and Panasonic) participating in the M43 consortium. Four new M43 cameras conforming to the standard were introduced just last year. And many more lenses.

The featured photo for this post is a simple picture of a northern cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) that I made in South Texas, last month. I used an Olympus 300 f/4 IS Pro Lens on an Olympus OM-D E-M1 X camera body, mounted to a RC-5570 Tripod with Uniqball UBH 45XC Ball Head with X-Cross Clamp. Triggered with an Olympus RM-CB2 Release Cable.
