My own guess is that there are a lot more photographers emotionally attached to Olympus than there are to Panasonic. The reasons for this are largely historical: Olympus made film cameras that were well loved and they acquired a dedicated band of followers soon after the introduction of the first Olympus SLR in the 1970s.

+1. Emptional attachment to Olympus is visible in many posts or threads. Now, I wonder where would Olympus be if not panasonic bringing quality lens (20mm, F2.8 zooms, leicas )and fast AF (very good since GH1) when Olympus was iterating their slow pens (P1, P2 anyone?) with slow kit zooms. however emotinally charged people like to talk so they do.

I think it's more of the case that Olympus are more successful than Panasonic.

Panasonic never had a success like the EM5
