It's not that any one feature is exclusive to Olympus, it's that cameras like EM1 line and EM5 line offer so many of these features in affordable weather resistant bodies that makes them so attractive. While other manufacturers play catch-up, Olympus users have been enjoying many of these features for some time. It's no wonder year after year so much of my work is carried out with Olympus cameras. They make it easy to meet client demands. On a personal level, they are engaging and enjoyable to shoot. Icing on the cake.

I think playing catchup goes many ways. You could say Olympus has been playing catchup in auto focus vs the competitors at least in some areas too, I don't see it as competitors being trying to catch up to Olympus as a sole one way street statement.

As great as Fujifilm cameras are, other than the XT4, they've been rather lacking in AF. And one could argue that the XT4 is still behind even it's Olympus direct competitors, the EM1 II/III and even the EM5 III.

And affordable? Dunno, I see affordable competitors too.

When it comes to lenses as well?

I do think the system doe shave some advantages, but the whole list is presented as key Olympus advantages with some half truths thrown in. Telecentricity in m43rds lenses- right.

So you throw out the entire premise based on one potential inaccuracy?
