This really ups the ante in the competition for lenses. Personally I haven't sunk a lot of money into lenses yet at some point I know that's the next smartest upgrade for my gear. So the question becomes whether to stick with adapted lenses such as manual focus Nikon F and Leica M mounts that can be used on just about any camera body including the higher end SonyCaNikon? Or switch to purpose-built M43 lenses? Already many of the lenses available for M43 can compete optically with some of the pro lenses and are often quite a bit cheaper (because of marketing considerations and because there's less glass.) Right now I only have two M43 lenses - the kit lens and the 40-150 zoom. I prefer primes but have not spent any money on autofocus primes. Yet.

Good point of view. Let's see who of the companies that have joined can make good micro 4/3 lenses at a good price. and with good IQ. But it will be very difficult to compete with Panasonic and Olympus.
