I think that the problems in the camera business reflect the economic situation world wide.

Basically, the entire EU, Oz and USA economies are being run as giant Ponzi Schemes ; China is arbitraging on its exchange rate (big time); Russia is riddled to its core with corruption - political and economic; and most of the rest of the world's States are run as personal satrapies by military dictators concerned with their own self-aggrandisement and pillaging whatever assets their country does have.

In this sort of situation, can we we really expect much?

Agree with all of this John and afraid at some point it will all come crashing down. This is why I'm keeping my OM-1 (no batteries needed) even when the lights go out I'll still be taking photos.
