When technolgy change to the better a smart company see an opportunity, otherwise it can be to late. Panasonic was selling more than Olympus in 2010, now Olympus has taken the crown. There can be many reasons for that, but I think it is partly because of Olympus IBIS (combined with Panasonics over segmentation and reiteration of its products)

Many of you says that IS is much better then IBIS for longer focal lengths, but this test seems to suggest otherwise:

I think me as a consumer would benefit if they choose the same type of implementation. It would make the M43 format more consistent.
