Default Sony possibly buying 10% share of Oly


"Sony is reportedly close to agreeing on a 50 billion yen (about $620 million) investment in the scandalized firm. This would likely give the Japanese electronics giant a 10 percent stake in Olympus, making it the largest single shareholder"

Would Sony be a good fit with Oly or would Pana be the better choice esp when it comes to say cameras?

No, please no....anyone else, not Sony...they are the bad luck bears of electronics.
Panasonic/Leica/Olympus....now THAT would rock my socks off!!
Try out that Sigma sensor too...Leica glass, Panasonic design, Olympus antishake/sensor cleaner...o-baby!
Canon and Nikon would get a bit ichy, me thinks.

Interesting, but Sony has recently posted very huge losses and has troubles of it's own. It seems like every week there is a story of another firm wanting to buy a stake in Olympus. I'm not sure that you can count out Fuji as buying a 10% piece of Oly, or that Oly will sell stock in the marketplace to raise more capital.
