Keep in mind that Olympus's M43 market share is sgnificantly bigger than Panasonic's.

Are we sure that this is right Eric?

Pansonic has released 18 new camera bodies over the last three years so far (including 3x L-Mount bodies) compared to Olympus’ 5 new bodies.

They must be selling an awful lot of E-M1ii bodies to have more current market share than Panasonic - even if you hive off L-Mount.

Even with the same failure rate, you should see at least twice as many failure reports from Olympus owners.

The complaint rate overall is quite low.

The biggest issue is that Panasonic customer service for spare parts and repairs varies from acceptable to just plain awful, depending on where you live; whereas Olympus's customer service is generally pretty good.
