But, how would these relationships work between Olympus and Panasonic? Both of their camera divisions are losing money. Why on Earth Panasonic would give Olympus exclusive rights to their sensor? Maybe it was that joking IBIS in GX7 that Panasonic got in return? So joking that they didn't even include it in GH4.

Does'nt the EM1 sensor have a different designation?  I suspect a slightly crippled version for OLY. Otherwise where is the electronic shutter, (im not expecting 4k video) but the high speed modes would be cool.

Anyway I think its win win for everyone. Panasonic and Olympus have a sensor sales base that is in the 100' thousands rather than only 10's thousands
