Q&A with Nikon for their Q3 financial results (Imaging Business):

Q: What can you tell us about the reduction in the full-year forecast for sales units of digital cameras-interchangeable lens type for this fiscal year?

A: We have lowered our forecast for the digital cameras-interchangeable lens type market volume that estimated last time in November by 1 million units to 13.7 million units. We changed our forecast for Europe, particularly Russia, which has been impacted by the depreciation of the Ruble, and China. Also, we suspended production of the D750 digital SLR camera for approximately one month after a problem was identified at the end of 2014. We are resuming full production and shipments from February and are working to recover from the situation, but an impact on sales units in 4Q will be unavoidable. In light of the above conditions, we made a downward revision to our full-year forecast for sales units of digital cameras-interchangeable lens type, lowering the forecast to 4.65 million units, a decline of 250,000 units from the last November’s forecast.
