Anybody who thinks they need more technology than what an E-5 provides for shooting in decent light are fooling themselves, or trying to mask bad technique with a buying fetish ...

Very, very true. Agree completely ... up to ISO 1600 anyway. Beyond that, I for one need to turn to another camera and lens for high ISO shooting with excellent results. But below that setting, the E-5 is all the camera anyone could ever need or want, save for its weight I guess. Some people prefer smaller and lighter, in which case I guess the OM-5 is a good choice. My "lightweight" is the E-420. Amazing camera when combined with the 14-54.
