    Can this be true?

    DC.watch interviewed Mr Haruo from Olympus Imaging. And there are a couple of interesting info:

    1) smartphones did eat up the compact camera market with exception of models having those characteristic: Good Low Light performance, larger zoom range and weather proof cameras.

    2) This year Olympus system camera sales went up + 140-150%!

    3) Successor for the E-M5 is ready to be launched as next!

    That’s great news for Olympus…and us

    It's clear their new strategies have been working out well for M43 makers. Most of their stuff this year has been great, even if it's less than usual (and do we need 8 new camera models every year?).

    Almost makes me forgive them for the EPL7 selfie campaign. Almost.
