Its a high end enthusiasts camera, it doesn't have pro build quality or spot metering linked to focus point,

I hadn't realised you can't link the spot metering to the focus point; are you sure about this?  How else would you use spot metering?

it would also be nice to have 100% anywhere in frame auto focusing as well as class leading continuous focusing....

I thought you could AF anywhere in frame, using the touchscreen.  But I realise the continuous focusing is not good.  Not a major problem for me, though.

But it's already on the expensive side, I think.  A higher end version could be silly money, unless Oly drops the price of the current model.

I'll probably buy the OMD now anyway, despite no swivel screen.  If they bring out a swivel screen version, I'll decide then if I want to trade in and pay the extra.
