Sony camera division is now bigger than Nikon camera division
3 months ago

Sources:

Nikon:

"Summary for the year ended March 31, 2014 for Imaging Company:

Sales is down 9% due to lingering stagnation of camera markets mainly in Europe and China"

685.4/751.2=0.9124, or -9%

Sony:

Page 4:

"Imaging Products & Solutions (IP&S)

(Billions of yen, millions of U.S. dollars)

Fiscal year ended March 31

2013 2014 Change in yen 2014

Sales and operating revenue ¥756.2 ¥741.2 -2.0 % $7,196

Operating income 1.4 26.3 +1,725.7 256

The IP&S segment includes the Digital Imaging Products and Professional Solutions categories. Digital Imaging Products includes compact digital cameras, video cameras and interchangeable single-lens cameras; Professional Solutions includes broadcast- and professional-use products."

So Sony Imaging lost only 2% in sales this year, and now its sales are 741.2 billion yen vs 685.4 for Nikon Imaging.

Please note that Sony imaging does not include their sensors, processors and sensor/lens modules for smartphones, these are in Devices (pg 5), another Y794B/year business.
