and Oly doesn't rely on camera sales to justify development - they use the fast moving camera market to develop tech for their medical imaging products - their real moneymaker.

May I ask what benefit Olympus's camera tech is to their medical imaging products?

TrapperJohn has been making that argument for quite some time. IMO, he bought into the rationale that one or more Olympus officials gave to justify their camera business.  Company officials are no more credible than publications such as Huffington--both have vested interests.

Oly's recent cameras are superb, which is why I believe their camera business will become profitable in the near future.
