Time to settle this debate once and for all, at least until this year's new cameras are all announced. I'm dead set on finding out which camera brand is truly the best. Here are the choices:

Olympus

Sony

Fuji

Panasonic

Leica

Pentax

Nikon

Canon

Samsung

These are roughly in order of how likely they should be to win. So pick the best brand(s) and defend your choice. Informed, well-articulated comments are preferred, and no trolling please; nobody likes to see decent threads get sabotaged. No reason why a solid discussion can't take place without a flame war.

Now have at it!

P.S. I'll start: Olympus is the best brand because it has cool retro styling, professional IQ in a very portable sized camera, retro design, IBIS, a wide range of lenses (including compatible Panasonic and 3rd party lenses), compact-sized lenses, strong secondary market, reasonably priced, rumored fast zoom lens coming, and Olympus is an awesome name. Sony is cool too but their NEX lenses aren't quite as good, not as much selection, and too large.

No single one can possibly be picked, however:

Fuji's X Sereis are making waves and i suspect the second generation X Pro 2 and X-E2 will be very good cameras.

Nikon For DSLR's at the moment IMO Nikon trump canon in terms of sensors, but do have some QC issues with their mid range prosumer/semi-pro bodies.

Sony Honourable mention for making a full frame compact.
