Olympus and Sony Partnership
Sep 15, 2012

It's already known EM-5 has a Sony's sensor

Now they officially go to bed


  • Olympus discussed with several potential partners but eventually chose Sony

  • Sony will invest ¥50bn (i.e. €485m or $640m) in Olympus

  • Olympus and Sony will set up a joint-venture to develop medical devices of the next generation, such as high definition endoscopes with video and 3D technology

  • In order to leverage Olympus’s business of digital cameras, which is in a slump (literally: 不振), Olympus and Sony will promote cooperation and jointly develop some components

  • Both parties expect to sign a definitive agreement within a month.
