Olympus vs. Panasonic (Why is Olympus more expensive?)
3

I bought a Panasonic G85 not only for its features (4K video, dual IBIS, weather sealed body, flippy screen, etc.) but because I got a great price on it in a packaged deal on Amazon.

I didn't look at Olympus because of the price (and I didn't find the camera to look all that attractive).

Now I hear that Panasonic is for video, Olympus is for still photography.  Really?  What makes Olympus more expensive than Panasonic?

I've heard good things about both companies when it comes to lenses.  Does Olympus perform better in low light?  Does it have better auto-focus?

Which camera do you have and why?  Would you switch to the other company if given the chance?
