Nikon posts some very bad results:
When the JIP-Olympus announcement came, folks asked "where to go next?" I feared at that time that Nikon might be headed toward the same fate. Maybe it's a side point, but I'd still say it's a wait and see for us M43 users, unless you just want to go with Sony. There may still be some shakedowns headed our way. Do you think Nikon will end up with a similar sale deal as Olympus? That's a big name to fall, but I guess nothing lasts forever.According to Japanese publication Toyo Keizai and summarized by Digicame-Info, “the prestigious Nikon is in dire straits” thanks to the deterioration of the main camera business. In the video business, which includes cameras, sales for the coming financial quarter are expected to decrease by around 40% from the previous term to 140 billion yen (~$1,338,809,640), leaving the company with an operating deficit of 45 billion yen (~$430,331,670).
