Re: With Panasonic in 2nd place, m43 takes more than 50% of the market

The only numbers that should be of any significance to us are the financial data from Olympus and Panasonic imaging divisions. These are of mild concern considering what to us appears to have been a boon time for mFT sales, yet both companies are struggling. It will be interesting to see how the market moves especially if any of the big two deliver a serious mirrorless model. For me mFT has delivered the goods in every area apart from a longer tele lens, I am a big sports fan.

It is rather concerning but considering both companies camera divisions are only a small part of their parent company, their financial struggles don't really represents how each company is doing in their camera divisions. It's certainly possible that both companies camera divisions are doing very well with very nice profits and still be both struggling financially overall.

It would be nice to get some data on how only their camera divisions are doing financially just from a purely curiosity sake.
