The long view is that Olympus and Panasonic have created a very nice system that keeps getting better. And we must remember that Panasonic has done some really remarkable things too. Like their GH and GX cameras, and creating some of the very best M4/3 lenses.

This power of two gives them a real and well deserved advantage over Canon, Nikon, Sony and the rest. The lock particularly the first two of those brands put on those who purchased their cameras to also buy their proprietary lenses was shattered when mFT arrived with its open mount.

When Olympus and Panasonic shared sensors this resulted simply in a combined system of lenses being developed. Now that Panasonic has teamed with Fuji and Olympus with Sony on sensors, not only does their joint system of lenses continue to grow, but we're also seeing something of a renaissance in sensor design and new features being built into their cameras.  Ironically, mFT actually appears stronger as a result of this split.

Even though Olympus has suffered from bad fiscal and marketing management, no one can deny that their designers and engineers are among the very best in the industry.

Yes.  Olympus in particular brought many breakthroughs to digital cameras going back to their 4/3's days, and Pasnasonic was the trailblazer in mFT, with Olympus being smart enough to know a good thing when they saw it.

And we're happily enjoying the results; good times!
