Re: found: mirrorless was not profitable

Thank you very much for the full quote.  Some made it sound like mirrorless were responsible for all the loses.:-)

I don't think digital cameras are a good place to be right now in terms of profitability.  IMHO the worst place is 1/2.3" sensored cameras with less than 10x zoom.  The larger sensors look a little better, but still money losing.  The large zoom range may be able to be profitable.  DSLRs are money losing proposition in the long run, as phones get even better and mirrorless.  If you are going to make money, I would bet on mirrorless, but..... there are 5 systems out there, and olympus looks like it is badly managed.  There is money to be made in the future, but I would not bet on olympus winning, but it and sony are in the best position today.
