I use two dead systems - A-mount and μ43. While I don't see many other A-mount users in the wild, I can't say the same for μ43; in one group I meet with, over half of the shooters are using Olympus cameras. In that group it is Nikon that looks like the dead system.

However, in that group, Olympus has already peaked and it is now E-mount that is the growing system.
A99ii + 16-35Z | 24-70Z | 24-105 | 70-200G | 100-300 | 70-300G | 70-400G
20 | 28 | 50 | 300 | 500
A6600 + 10-18 | 16-70Z | 18-135 | 70-200/4G | 70-350G | 200-600G
28 | 56 | 85

I am waiting to see what the 100th Year brings for Olympus, if A Mount is really dead then I will decide next year which system to go for, I always used Olympus in the past.

I remember all to well. I was and still am a 4:3 shooter with an E-3 and E-5. M4:3 is my last mount and the reason I will not be joining E-mount or FE-mount (I don't like it). My original Olympus Kit at a cost of less than $500.00 in 1980 served me reliably for over 20 years and was dragged reluctantly into the digital era when the technology proved superior. I bought the LP's and VHS, CD's and DVD's; I'm DONE.

Olympus does make some nice equipment for sure. I like their microscopes

There is no FE-mount to not like. There is E-mount, and there are E and FE lenses. FE designates that the lens covers a full frame sensor
