A couple of corrections

There are more typos, but these two are significant:

"Micro 4/3 (hereinafter M4/3 ) means that 4/3 fans have been betrayed.”

All these abbreviations are mine; Ogawa and Olympus have not (at least not here) adopted a standard expression for micro four thirds, and the article uses the complete written-out expression throughout.

"Ogawa contined with conviction, “At that point back in 1996, we were already thinking that lenses needed a minimum MFT of around 200 lines— . . ."

"MFT" here should obviously be "MTF," namely Modulation Transfer Function. This was likely a parapraxis caused by thinking about more abbreviations for Micro Four Thirds. . . or maybe MyFourThirds... whatever.
