Olympus Imaging's prospects improve
Feb 8, 2014

I found this encouraging for all with Olympus DSLR's and mFT's:


and Olympus' official report on financials:


The E-M1 clearly has given them a boost and, combined with major reductions in compact inventory and the introduction of the entry level E-M10, it looks like they're turning the corner from the tide of red ink of recent years.

Maybe if things continue like this maybe they'll even throw a bone to 4/3's users with an E-M7 to reinvigorate HG and SHG lens sales.  The E-M1 is almost identical to the E-xxx line in size and weight, so why not an E-Mx on a diet, size between the K-3 and 70D, to better support HG/SHG lenses?

Likely just a daydream, but fun to speculate nonetheless.
