You are correct. MILC costs less to manufacture because the innards are more electronic and simpler (no mirror assembly) so more of it is done by machines. But To develop a MILC you must design the manufacturing process, design and buy the machines, do the electrical engineering, if you use a new mount then design all the new lenses (and again the new machines and manufacturing processes). All of that takes either a large capital injection or a lot of free cash flow from outside, invested yearly. SONY has capital and cash flow. Fuji has cash flow (Instax). Canon and Nikon have capital and cash flow. Panasonic and Olympus have (some) capital and cash flow.

Does Ricoh have extra capital and/or extra cash flow right now?
