Hopefully Panasonic stays health and pickups up some of the Olympus patents and manufacturing facilities if the worst does comes to pass.    If m43 got consolidated under Panasonic we might lose IBIS and warranty coverage of Olympus products would be gone (hopeful parts for repairs wouldn't be an issue for some time).

Anyway it is all just speculation and with some smart management they will hopefully survive to one day thrive again.
