What's special about Olympus? (no sarcasm, honest question)

I'm a Panasonic user, but still not deeply entrenched in Panasonic land. One of the reasons I went to M4/3 was the ability to share lenses between the 2 brands. But I've never used an Olympus camera and am curious what people see as the real benefits of Olympus over Panasonic. I've heard people say that Olympus is for photographers while Panasonic is for video/hybrid. Well, as far as Olympus is concerned, my casual research suggests that the benefits are live composite, nicer colors, and cool looking/feeling bodies. What else am I missing? Pontificate Olympus people!

In the next few months I may pick up a second body and am wondering whether it makes sense for it to be an Olympus or to keep things simple in the Panasonic family.
