Market analysts still predict that Olympus will go belly up, as early as this year, despite the fact that their sales figures are up, and they expect to turn a profit for the second year in a row, according to an article on The Phoblographer. To that point, the new Olympus OM-D EM-1 is the hottest selling mirrorless camera on Amazon.com.
Meanwhile Samsung, who continues to be mysteriously absent from these reports, have announced that they’ll be shipping the NX30, replacement for the NX20 model. The Phoblographer has a “first impressions” review up, and it’s certainly an intriguing camera. Samsung have also announced a series of new, high-end, “S” lenses.
If these companies are indeed going to go away, it’s certainly not going to be quietly.
