And for every other manufacturer under the sun. Olympus are no different, it's a facet of technology. Software and firmware, and under limiting conditions even hardware, are so complex that the human designer cannot possibly discover all the design errors. It's for this reason that fly by wire aircraft have multiple processing systems, with an arbiter as well. Each hardware design solution is different, and the software different too, in terms of programming language and compiler. This is chosen to minimise the risk of human failure.
