Olympus’ Imaging Business is Officially Expected to Shirk

Olympus Investor Day 2018 has some bad news for Olympus camera fans. Olympus has revised their sales downwards, which is to be expected with the announcement of the L-Mount alliance. They also listed some things they hope to focus on to improve their profitability, but this won’t keep the sales from shrinking.

  • Expand sales of highly-profitable OM-D series cameras and PRO series lenses:
    Mirrorless camera system that are uniquely Olympus, attaining high level of compatibility between overwhelmingly compact & lightweight and high image quality with the Micro Four Thirds Standard.
  • Accelerate development of products aimed for professional and high-level amateur users
  • Improve manufacturing cost ratio by consolidation of manufacturing facilities and improved efficiency in manufacturing startups
