Is it Laowa? Laowa have a couple of MFT lenses with electrical contacts to control aperture.

Yes, Laowa 10mm f/2.0, but no AF. I most people would miss that one.

I remember how pedantic the replies to your last trivia question got so I'm going to get an early bid in by saying Metabones.

Metabones is a lens too, I guess. Nice!

Tamron (14-150mm f3.5-5.8 zoom)

Yes.

Only one more that I know of.

DJI

Yes. I believe that's it. You win @BTM_Pix. Unless I missed one. Correct me if I'm wrong, the DJI 15mm f/1.7 is simply a repackaged Panasonic Leica 15mm f/1.7, made by Panasonic. One could say the same about many other lenses though. I believe the Olympus 75mm f/1.8 is actually made by Sigma, but it was design through and through by Olympus... more a question of production savvy.

I just learned this one the other day. Winner gets bragging rights.

i must have missed something, does btm_pix win as the xiaoyi has af  ?  or are all the answers winners.

you make no mention of af being a requirement  as far as i can see.

Yes. We're all winners here. @BTM_Pix was able to list the final lens manufacturer that has made a lens WITH electrical contacts (AF was NOT a requirement). You might be confusing the previous M43 trivia post.

Let's recap: OMDS/Olympus, Panasonic, Sigma, Tamron, Laowa (VenusOptics), Xaioyi, DJI and Yongnuo are M43 manufacturers that produce lenses with electrical contacts. The other quasi-producers are Metabones and Viltrox with their speedboosters.

Kodak is actually a M43 member with a camera and a couple lenses.

Thanks for that. I wonder how many more are going to show up out of the woodwork!

Updated list: OMDS/Olympus, Panasonic, Sigma, Tamron, Laowa (VenusOptics), Xaioyi, DJI, Yongnuo and Kodak are M43 manufacturers that produce (or have produced) lenses with electrical contacts. The other quasi-producers are Metabones and Viltrox with their speedboosters.
