Why Olympus?

Hi guys,

I am a very loyal and quite happy MFT user and even "defender-against-FF-fanboys", but all bodies I have are Panasonic-made and of the lower end. This forum is an MFT talk, but whenever I scroll through it, I see mostly discussions about the Olympus models, with a single exception, namely, Panasonic's GM5. Why? I have never had in my hands any SLR-like body from Panasonic (did I? I try to recall anything related to BestBuy... but I am not sure), like G85, G95, G9. Well, folks here seem to be softer towards GX8 (I have seen its viewfinder vs GX85), but in general, Olympus wins in getting attention and discussion. Is Panasonic so mediocre here?

I would appreciate your opinion. Do you expect anything from Panasonic?
