Patent: Olympus Working on Full-Frame Lenses, and Camera?

Patent: Olympus Working on Full-Frame Lenses, and Camera?

Two patents have surfaced recently which show that Olympus, the creators of the 4/3 sensor format are working on at-least two full-frame format lenses for mirrorless cameras. Olympus does not currently have any full-frame cameras in their line-up, and indeed any system they are working on would represent the companies first commercial venture into this market.
