    That is great news. It sure makes it easier to do R&D when they are generating a profit. We really need to evangelize the platform. I'm often showing off the E-M5 and talking about the system to people that see me with the camera. It usually starts with "Is that a film camera?" but sometimes it's a pro or other DSLR user that's inquiring about it. I hope it at least embeds something in their neurons so when they start shopping and see an Olympus camera they might lean toward it.

    That's only equivalent to 8 billion Yen for full frame camera manufacturer, though.
