Re: Panasonic announces the LUMIX G 20mm / F1.7 ASPH lens

Now question is: would Olympus cameras/software compensate for Panasonic lenses and vise versa? Is there any interoperability agreement on that between 4:3 members?
I think the correction factors are stored in the lens firmware, not the camera's - so that should not be an issue.
