    You are comparing many Canons with the lowest-end Olympus. That is kind of unfair to the OMD series and the quality of the Zuiko PRO lenses.
    If you want to say you are a Canon person, not a TG6 person, OK. But it is kind of a broad brush to just say Olympus.

    Well, I was around with my 'non canon, very old' SLR camera decades ago when the very first Olympus 35mm SLR was announced. To say I was very excited by the specs was an understatement, and I would gladly have bought one were I not a student and quite totally broke.

    Point is, once you have money invested in the lenses for ANY brand camera, it's an uphill battle to justify a brand switch.

    You are moving the goalposts.
    But that's OK.
    Live and let someone move the goalposts.

    My Setup
    TG6 with PT 059 housing.... Two Big Blue VL4200P video lights. DIY tray and Go Pro Hero 4 in dry port mount. Taken it to 40m on dives no leaks great housing. I bought my TG6 with the housing and spare battery and other accessories as a package.

    I prefer the video lights to strobes for macro and of course video.
