That loss is for the entire division

Including the P&S line, which Olympus had quite a few. The market for the P&S camera has all but disappeared in the last year. That would account for a big chunk of the losses.

Olympus has put quite a bit of R&D into M43: the electromagnetic IBIS, the EM5, the high grade primes. M43 in general is considered the leading force in mirrorless, which is a rapidly growing segment. Would they be investing in development if they were losing a big chunk of money on it?

Don't know what the profit/loss looks like with 4/3... there have been no new products since the E5.

My best hope is that they keep the HG and SHG glass viable, one way or another.
