OLYM­PUS has closed the book on its orig­i­nal Four Thirds dig­i­tal cam­era sys­tem which in­cluded the hugely suc­cess­ful lineup of E Series D-SLRs, in­clud­ing the com­pact E-400 mod­els (which started with the E-410 lo­cally). The cam­era bod­ies haven’t been avail­able for a long time (the pro-level E-5 was the last), but Olym­pus has still been of­fer­ing a se­lec­tion of Zuiko Dig­i­tal Four Thirds mount lenses. Pro­duc­tion has now ceased completely, but Olym­pus will con­tinue to make a mount adap­tor so ex­ist­ing ex­am­ples can be used on Mi­cro Four Thirds cam­era bod­ies. Of course, Mi­cro Four Thirds evolved out of Four Thirds (the sen­sors are the same size) and Olym­pus has since en­joyed on-go­ing suc­cess with both its Dig­i­tal PEN and OM-D lines.
