Well, here’s a surprise announcement, DJI is joining the L mount alliance. It’s not so much a surprise that more members are being added, as Panasonic Director, Yosuke Yamane mentioned that it may happen way back at the beginning of 2020. And making good on that suggestion, they added Leitz last October. But the fact that the newest member to join will be DJI is perhaps a little unexpected.
It kind of makes sense, though. After all, DJI has been starting to head more towards interchangeable lens cameras lately with the Ronin 4D and obviously, they make interchangeable lens cameras for some of their drones. But to eliminate any doubt about their intentions right away, along with the announcement DJI has launched a new L mount lens plate for their Zenmuse X9 camera.
