Olympus is the savior of this galaxy.

If nothing else, Olympus seems to be raising the bar, starting with the E-M5 and forcing Panasonic to try and keep up. Competition between these two companies are the only thing that are making the new m43 system increasing the IQ and helping to reduce prices, although they are still much too high, IMO.

Yes. Oly is good for Panny and vice versa. No question.

I like the GX7, but still find the images from the E-M5 look a bit sharper with slightly more detail.

Silly statement. Both can be tweaked to a huge extent. And then there is RAW for the enthusiasts who want real control.

I wonder if there will be a new and improved (slightly smaller/lighter/cheaper) E-M6 out early next year. I would like a weather sealed camera with 5-axis IBIS, but with better ergonomics (better grip) than the E-M5 has.

I thought the EM1 was that body ...

A new 'shutter shock' proof shutter would also be a nice feature, (not that everyone is having major problems with it on all lenses), but it would be a nice new feature.

The G5, GH3, G6, GX7 and GM1 all have one of those. Go figure ...
