  Editorial view

  Olympus seems to be struggling with imaging products, but in fact, the majority of profitability is still based on medical products. But this is also Olympus. It is the result of its own deep accumulation in imaging technology. I hope Olympus can continue to exert its strength in its own imaging products, bringing more and more distinctive, more personalized, and also more powerful camera products.
