I'd guesstimate 90% of the cameras on the market are already complete once they're put out on the market. The software updates are only bonuses (unless they fix an actual mistake/error in the code).When you are buying an ILC body, you are buing a computer and the value doesn't come from HW anymore. It comes from SW updates which will constantly improve cameras performance and features in coming years. The biggest showstopper for Olympus is currently the fact that you will likely never get any of that.
Constantly improve performance? I think I've seen that only once in m4/3 history and that was with the E-M1's AF-C. Better to get things right before releasing the camera than fixing it in the post.
Obviously it would be great if camera makers would give us new updates every 6 months and keep on adding features to old cameras. It would also be nice if Trump wasn't the president of USA, there were no hunger and wars in the world and we had a cure for cancer...
