In their reports I also noted a clear remark that their mirrorless line has been profitable over the last year.

Good work.

Looks like there's some lies, damn lies and statistics going on here.

I can thank abrak for pointing out the real data.

Digital camera sales fell YOY last quarter, with low priced fixed lens cameras falling the most.  Interchangeable lens cameras also fell, with dslrs falling more than mirror less.  This makes sense that  mirrorless is a growing percentage of the interchangeable lens market.

That is contrary to the thread title.

Other highlights are that Olympus camera division lost money, because they had expenses too high.  They are cutting a low priced line and many other expenses.

It did not appear to be broken out what the margins are on the m4/3 cameras and lenses.  We can assume from prices that lenses have very high margins.   I don't know if m4/3 bodies are profitable, or sold at a loss to sell lenses.
