Sony, Panasonic, Fuji and Olympus have incomplete lens lineups
The m4/3 line-up looks pretty complete. As a matter of fact, these people are spoilt for choice. 188 lenses are listed and simply too much quality.

I think that's the point, Dominic.

A gap in the Olympus lineup can be covered by something from Panny.

Have to agree on that, just between Panasonic/Olympus and Sigma they have 20 odd primes that cover fisheye to 150mm. I've got what probably is regarded as the worst lens of the lot (Olympus 17 f2.8) and its really a very good performer.

The only kink in the M4/3 lens line-up is a lack of standard zooms with a bit more reach. Generally most zooms are around the 28-80 range or 28-300 superzoom types, but apart from one 24-100 there is nothing else.

It seems like 3 new companies are joining, with DJI being an exhibitor at CP+

I was kinda hoping Ricoh was going to be the one jumping in, but I guess that's not gonna happen. Looks like M43 cameras are going to be growing wings and rotors instead.
