Open ſyſtems cameras

Not quite open, and not in the plural. But ðe Leica Digilux 3 is ƿe only camera folloƿiȝ ſtandards boþ for lenſes and output — respectively, þe Four Thirds ſtandard by Olympus and ðe Adobe DNG file format.

So all ye endoƿed freedom lovers, pleaſe vote ƿiþ your dollars. Poor me ƿill have to go ƿiþ a mere Olympus E510, already more money ðan I am uſed to ſpend — it does not output open format files, but it has a ſtandard lens mount.
