... I switched from the Sony (a700) to Nikon (D7000) in the fall of 2010 because I didn't like the direction Sony was going with their SLTs and EVF Alpha cameras and there was never an upgrade to the a700, so I jumped, and have been very glad I did.

Very similar story here, but I went to Pentax - back to Pentax actually, it was my pre-digital brand. I too am happy with my decision, and will toss out the unspoken question: why not a K-5? Similar to your Oly with weather seals and sensor-IS, and reviewers gave it very high marks. Definitely a personal choice, and CaNi cameras will most certainly do the job.. but despite all the comments Pentax isn't dead yet and Ricoh wants it to thrive.
