It's important to know ones place and do what sustainable and achievable to survive. Olympus seemed to be trying the upmarket strategy with the $2000 E-M1 II back in 2016, not realising that both its place as a camera maker and consumer confidence in it have eroded a lot over the years.

While I tend to agree that Olympus focused too much on the high end, what this narrative seems to be missing is the fact that the profits from the EM1-II helped Olympus generate its first annual profit in a number of years, and quite possibly kept Olympus going for longer than they otherwise would have.
