Olympus Q&A, CP+ 2016

Some interesting information on Olympus the company and camera strategy in this interview with Masamichi Handa and Toshiyuki Terada.

Quote:
Imaging Resource founder and Publisher Dave Etchells had a chance to sit down with Masamichi Handa and Toshiyuki Terada of Olympus Corporation's Imaging Business Unit (the division responsible for producing their cameras and lenses) at the recent CP+ show in Yokohama, Japan. Mr. Handa is the Executive Officer and Head of the Imaging Business Unit, while Mr. Terada is the General Manager of their Global Marketing Strategy Department. Topics of conversation included whether Olympus has fully recovered from the investment and accounting crisis of several years ago, and if so, what impact that might have on their camera and lens development going forward, the fate of the PEN line of cameras, whether Olympus will enter the large-sensor compact business or not (think in terms of competitors to Sony's RX line and Canon's G7x models), and some surprising insight on how the company views its recently-announced PEN-F mirrorless model.

Re: Olympus Q&A, CP+ 2016

A very interesting interview and welcome news of Olympus camera division's improving fortunes in a difficult market.

I recall from posts in the past that Terada-san is one of Ian's contacts at Olympus and has visited his office when in the UK.

Regards.

Agreed, it is very reassuring that the restructuring at Olympus includes keeping the imaging business as one of the companies' core businesses.

I feel more confident in keeping with my OMD outfit. I wonder when we will see some more new lenses from Olympus.
