But the bottom line is that profit. They were not making a profit on 4/3rds, they were losing money. Look at all other data points- the company had said before that if by 2015 the camera division was not profitable, maybe it was time to even cut it off! This was said publicly!

Were they losing money on 4/3, or on the entire camera division? Because I recall seeing some recent financial data, in which the camera division was STILL losing money, despite m4/3 seemingly being a major hit.

Could it be that Olympus was making money on 4/3, just as it is making money on m4/3, and it is all the hundreds and hundreds of compact and ultrazoom models that are responsible for the loss?

(God, this editor is awful. I think it doesn't like my browser.)
