Re: no electronic interface

I forgot to mention that I bought into the M4/3 std. because I was hoping that aftermarket lens designed for the format would eventually surface. After seeing so many M mount VC lenses on M4/3 bodies, this is a nice beginning.

Judging from the early samples:

Very little can be gained from electronic coupling. Perhaps a little extra, like going from 98% to 100, but my eyes wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Anyway, I am glad that Voigtlander is making this lens, even though I won't buy it. It proves the commercial viability of manual lenses on an m4/3 body.
