No way does Sony have 51% share of Olympus. That would have been

headlines in the real WSJ, every other business paper, and on this website. More like less than 10%, but it was somewhat shared with a new venture (or perhaps entity) that involved the two companies and was focused on medical imaging. I believe that 51% was mentioned in that regard a few months ago, but that venture has been delayed or postponed. Naturally, Sony wants to move in that direction, considering the stagnation of the consumer camera sector, as well as to enlarge the scope of its sensor operations to make up for its other electronics losses, such as TVs.
