The L1 was based on the Olympus E330.

The L10 was based on the Olympus E510.

I say "based" because these were NOT rebrands, like the Samsung GX models that were just rebrands of Pentax DSLRs. These were significant redesigns that added some features, and removed others, while adding a higher build quality.

Panasonic's commitment to 4/3 was brief and spotty. They only released two bodies and four lenses during a brief period between 2006 and 2007. And two of those four lenses were very similar normal zoom lenses.

Many Olympus users like myself have a bond with Olympus that goes back decades to the OM1 and XA cameras. Panasonic is just a more recent player in the market and lacks this connection with film cameras.
