So I was catching up on my new unread posts and I realized that it seems that most new topics related to a specific body or system are Olympus oriented. Not all, obviously, but a majority. So I went to the main forum index and looked at the thread counts for each and noticed that Olympus has almost exactly double the number of threads as Panasonic. The total messages are again more than double. I thought this was really strange for a minute, since I had assumed that Oly and Pana were about split for market share... but then I went and looked up the sales figures and I was wrong. Actually, in 2014 the split was like this: Olympus: 159k ILC units, 8.7% ILC market share Panasonic: 89k ILC units, 4.9% ILC market share Note - those figures are from Japan's sales statements, according to ByThom/SansMirror.com. But still, a good representation I would imagine. So the numbers line up... Oly outsold Panasonic roughly 2:1, and we have a similar split on the boards. Not that this means anything, it was just kind of neat and somewhat surprising to me. Math! Statistics! Causality! Vocabulary!
