Re: Thom Hogan on the future of Olympus.

Quite simply, if the new management are in any way uncomfortable with Olympus continuing in the consumer imaging market, I suspect they will look to divest themselves of that aspect of their business.

But who will they divest it to? A few years back, the answer would have been simple: Panasonic! Fast forward a few years and Panasonic has done extremely well in terms of the expertise it has developed with both Leica (lenses) and Olympus (camera systems). I'm not sure what Panasonic has to learn from Olympus at this point (it's hardly like the Sony takeover of Minolta where Sony knew almost nothing of DSLRs).

Interesting times, though I have utmost confidence my cameras and lenses will continue to work through them.
