This was posted yesterday by Mike Johnston of The Online Photographer. In it, he lists the companies he regards as the title says, “The World’s Great Lens Makers.”
Olympus is number two, after Zeiss.
Now, from anyone else, one might be forgiven for regarding it as trolling. But Mike’s not a troll. And these things are subjective judgments in any case. But let’s just say it pleased me to see Oly’s placement in that list.
