Among other obstacles, unless they improve their marketing/advertising and product placement/visibility, their mirrorless cameras will only be popular in their local market.

Here in the USA, I don't know if I have ever seen an Olympus mirrorless ad, or an Olympus mirrorless camera on a store shelf.

They've recently had ads for the OMD system in the NY Times, but TV ads appear to have disappeared.  Olympus also dropped their co-sponsorship of the US Open Tennis tournament (I always thought it was a strange to see Olympus ads in a venue with a bevy of pros capturing the action with their Canikons.)

So, if anything, I think their marketing in the US has decreased recently.
