Secret behind MFT lens costs...
Jul 29, 2012

I've seen a lot of moaning and groaning over MFT's slightly higher lens costs lately. I felt that maybe it was time air Olympus's (& Panasonics) dirty little secret.

SALES VOLUMES

Nikon and Canon sell more lens--even high quality pro-lenses--than Olympus could ever dream of. Which means that Olympus can't take advantage of the same level of economy of scale that the big two can.

This is always one of the downsides to dealing with smaller brands.

Small volumes = Bigger Costs per unit.

Oh look... a flower
