The market for lenses is growing like never before. The increasing popularity of digital SLR cameras also increases the demand for DSLR lenses. Thanks to the advent of the Micro Four Thirds System, heavily promoted by Panasonic and Olympus, a new market has arisen, with a possible potential to grow into a substantial market share. The PMA International Convention and Trade Show 2011 is the spot for manufacturers to bring their product line to the public. Many different zoom lenses, including the wide-angle lenses, which are interesting for the amateur photographer, and the fixed focus lenses from wide-angle to ultra telephoto lenses. The professional photographer is looking forward to seeing the full-format optimized lens. We predict the Micro Four Thirds as a strong newcomer on the PMA 2011.
