Olympus expects 'strong growth' in mirrorless 'in conjunction with market trends'. (yeah right!) They are forecasting mirrorless sales to increase from 38bn yen to 50bn yen (ho, ho, ho).

I guess you don't believe the yen is much weaker this year than last year?

Well according to CIPA for the first 3 months of 2013, global mirrorless shipments were down 18.5% YOY in unit terms and 17.9% in value terms (yen). So the depreciating yen helps a bit but a 32% growth forecast against a market declining 18% seems pretty jolly to me.

Thanks for that.  I pulled up CIPA and the slides you generously linked.

In Q4 of the japanese fiscal year 2013(Q1 2013 calander year)

-47.6%  Fixed Lens

-23.4%  DSLR

-18.5%  mirrorless interchangable

According to Olympuses report from the year ending march 2013, m4/3 increased sales.

I agree with all the information, m4/3 may decline this year, but it appears DSLR will decrease more.
