    Default Canon doing well in a camera industry slump

    Full year net income may total 260 billion yen ($3.3 billion), 18 percent higher than the company’s April prediction, it said in a statement today. Canon also increased its forecasts for revenue, operating profit and sales of single-lens reflex cameras used by professionals................Canon raised the forecast for sales of cameras with interchangeable lenses, typically used by professionals, to 7.3 million units from 7 million predicted earlier. The forecast for sales of compact cameras was kept unchanged at 20 million units.........................Demand for high-end cameras including models with interchangeable lenses is robust in China and India ..................Global shipments of digital-cameras tumbled 7 percent in units and 17 percent in value during the first five months of 2011 from a year earlier.

    actually to be honest, most of us not really interested to know how much Canon earn with their interchareable lenses, but i think most of us will be interested to know how much Canon sell their lenses in the near future.

    Good for Canon. It seemed like they are going the right way in the market.

    Really we must congratulate them for a job well done. It was the effort of everyone in the company that make things work to their advantage.

    (PS. I don't buy Canon shares and it had nothing to do with this topic).
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    The 2 are related. Industry is over-supply with cameras mean prices are ever going lower for bodies. But once u buy their bodies, you are stuck to buying their lens whose prices never drop.

    This is helped by the Pentax owners ditching their cameras for Canon.
