Tereda: One thing we always say is that Japan and the Asian people like to have new things. Americans and Europeans tend to be a bit more conservative. We are expecting this. On the other hand, we strongly promote, especially in the Japanese and Asian market, cameras designed for the young generation with a focus on young females. However, we can see the potential in Europe now that so many females enjoy photography and post pictures on social networks. We tried to test the market potential in Paris once with the Pen camera where we had a touch-and-try show in the centre of the city. So many young ladies came to the event and they tried the camera and everybody said that it was really nice. But still these women have no strong buying power, that is, the income is low. However, we clearly see the possibility – they love photography and they love the Pen camera. If we can clearly see the target user, I am sure we can convince Europe and America.

You saying they cannot market products to women, which is a potential emerging market? Why ignore %50 of the population?

Your comprehension and interpretation is below average.

Oh I see we are now getting  marked and evaluated. . I Think this is a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

It depended on which side you sit in this interpenetration. When I read the statement I though ouch . Olympus have been a inward looking company as to markets always assuming that the rest of the world will follow Asian and Japanese trends  Maybe they are correct as China will soon be the biggest economy in the world. Also assuming European woman have no buying power is way off track.

A to highlighting well most of us can read ( I don't write  that well )  but  don't assume anything.
