They don't need to excel, they just need to stay with the pack.

Their goal is to attract CaNikon photographers in the m4/3 system, and given the E-M1 buzz and coverage (despite it's subpar video features...), they could well succeed. And like Terada said, Panasonic has already nice MFT cameras for video.

Sadly, many in the CaNikon group do actually want good video, and as tech advances, so would the number of average Joe's who want their camera to do second duty as a video camera. Seriously, who wants to carry around 'another' device just for video? It's already becoming a hindrance for many to carry a camera over their cell phone. DSLR's and mirrorless at least has a large leg up on stills and depending on the camera, video as well. Video is becoming more and more important and as we see in the camera industry they are trying to get into that genre.

If Oly just leaves it alone, they will fall behind others and become more niche then it is already. Personally I want Oly to become a hugely successful camera company. Same for m43.
