Asia, now.

As I see it, from the other forum, you people are not really considering the 3 important facts:

  • Appreciation of the Yen. Oly might have to increase prices.

  • Category: missing profits might entirely be due to P&S/iPhones, and/or dSLR vanishing.

  • Geographical factor: lack of profits is negligible in Japan. But they plunged in America and Europe.

In fact by rankings and Market Share Oly's Micros are doing very well.

Therefore unless Oly adopts dSLR like models like Panny, which did well in the US; I see it folding American and European operations. Those are dSLR centric countries.

Oly would do well to concentrate its marketing in Asia, like Mr. Terada hinted at. That's were sales are for mirrorlesss anyway.

C&N saturated the market for 'cropped' dSLR, and it's not going to change.

Instead 2011 will be critical for Micro: upper tier lenses and body, both by Oly and Panny, before Sony starts eroding their sales. In Asia.
