Re: V2 will have a future when it has better (and more) lenses

just to clarify as well,... sony (and fuji) only went into olympus when that story of them funneling half a billion to the caman islands/ bahamas came out.

the stock tanked and olympus was trading at a price that made it look very tasty.

so they didnt "invest" in olympus because they believed in its future, as much as they pounced on a bargain and a chance to kill/takeover a competitor.

The last part is just FUD. They don't have enough stock to kill / takeover Olympus. You don't try to kill a competitor by providing it with funds at the moment it needs it most.

But yeah, they obviously waited until the investment opportunity was attractive before they invested. That's normal.
