This is an interesting one. Japan Industrial Partners (JIP), the private equity company which saved Olympus’ camera division, is buying out Toshiba for $14 billion. Toshiba has been struggling since 2015, and JIP wants to turn that around.
While Sony is the top dog these days when it comes to camera sensors, Toshiba has been known to make camera sensors in the past. 2013’s Nikon D5200, for example, contains one. So the deal potentially brings a lot of new tech to OM System.
