So there we go, saying it blows away the E5 is saying a lot. What did the E5 have going for it specifically that it could be blown away by this latest product?

Already the EM-5 is better visually and feature wise is superior. What's left? Focus speed...

Well I imagine that like the E-5 had most of the features in the current Pens backported to the 4/3rds setup (movie support, art filters, etc.), a E-7 backport of the E-M5 would give E-5 users a few new things:

  • The improved movie mode that allows for capturing up to 29 minutes of a performances instead of 7 or 14 minutes (depending on whether you record HD or SD).

  • The new IS system, though obviously you won't see the results of IS in the optical viewfinder.

  • Up to 9fps

  • Touchscreen focus point

Yes, the E-M5 has these, but it can be inconvenient to shoot with the larger lenses on the E-M5 (slow auto focus, weight distribution, etc.).
