The good news is that Olympus has finally built a small pro-spec camera (one with good controls, a metal body, weather-sealing, a good EVF and a good sensor) that many of us were asking for in 2009.

it isn't pro spec, Terada even said so

It's metal, it's weather-sealed and the shutter is rated to 100k actuations. Close enough to the E-5 for anybody who'd care. Terada has to throw a bone to the (few) remaining 4/3 users but the writing is on the wall.

He's saying it's not pro spec so that they can throw in an E-M7 with higher spec if the E-M5 goes OK. Remember OM-D is a series of cameras, as usual, they release the middle one first.
