This is sad for Olympus but good for Fuji. One fewer competitor. Market consolidation. Remember those "Fuji vs. Oly, which to get?" threads? Now those buyers will more likely go for Fuji.

Although Olympus has been ailing for quite some time, I suspect COVID has a role in it. Oly threw big money into making the giant E-M1X sports camera, expecting to sell a load of them to people shooting the Tokyo Olympics and the Euro 2020 this summer. Now both events have been postponed due to COVID, and I would't be surprised if the imaging section of Olympus is now facing a cash flow problem.
