How may of you E-X owners would mind of Olympus redesigned the E-X to the point you needed a new grip and batteries?

Didn't the E-30 use the same grip as well?  A new camera could be a little smaller than the current E-5 and still use the same battery grip.

How many of you think a DSLR to sit in the E-XXX size with a more "stylized" look would sell. Lets assume it is about $800 and harks back to the heyday of DSLRs with some metal, leather etc.

I hope the stylized thing will not happen to my new E-whatever. No leather either.  The rubber grips covering the magnesium alloy body is great.

I shoot the E-5.  I have had an E-620.  What a terrific light weight body that 620 is.  I would like to have something that small and light and yet still DSLR and updated.
