Olympus Working on Advance Hybrid AF Sensor

The sensor is designed by a camera manufacturer but outsourced for fabrication to a third party, it is not quite the same as using a sensor from a third party, right? So, most of the camera makers including Fuji, Nikon and now even Canon does the same. In the New patent, Olympus is working to improve the Autofocusing system of the Hybrid sensors. The patent was granted on Feb of this year. We do hope and expect we will see a new generation of Hybrid AF Sensors in Upcoming Olympus Flagship cameras.
