But there is a growing fire under the smoke...

The losses are substantial, and when broken out by hemisphere the problem mirrors what a lot of us have seen. The importation of a western senior executive - really extraordinary in cultural terms - further bears out the concerns that have been expressed on this thread.

I don't disagree that Olympus's demise has been predicted by a lot of pundits for a number of years. But Olympus Imaging has 5% of the market and has been consistently losing money, with no end to the hemorrhaging in sight, and no clear market strategy other than sell as many m4/3s cameras in the Eastern Hemisphere as they can.

I hear what you're saying, Trapper, but I think the concerns expressed in this thread are legitimate. To ignore them is whistling past the graveyard. OK - I'll take the hit for the hyperbole - but a lot of these problems are very real.
