In fact, with at least 4 companies producing various types of bodies with the same mount, and countless lens manufacturers... I think the mount is quite safe for years to come.

Some of the features found on current m43rds cameras are class leading, especially when you consider the pricepoint of the bodies, and the lenses being produces are truly exceptional.

I count only three who make native-mount lenses that can autofocus, embed EXIF data, or communicate electronically with the camera: Olympus, Panasonic, and Sigma. And Sigma hasn't released a native M43 lens since 2013.

Why only count lenses that autofocus? Are the Voigtlander lenses not worth inclusion?  There are actually very few gaps in the system barring an UW af, a long macro and a ultra tele (like a 400 or 500mm prime).
