Well, fortunately I'm poor.

I'll be looking to upgrade to the E-5 when the E-x comes out. Should save me a bundle. I purchased my E-3 for $550 a couple of years back. Unfortunately, the E-7 will probably be out of my price range for about 4 years and it will be hard to wait. I could sell some lenses, but I think trading lenses for cameras is a bad idea.

The E-5 held it's price much longer than any previous DSLR made by Olympus. I think that's mostly because they cut the E-xxx and E-xx line and didn't offer much "vision" for an upgrade/replacement for several years. I expect the E-5 will be pretty cheap used when the E-7 lands. If I were an E-5 owner I would probably sell now, buy an E-P3 or G5 side kick on closeout prices and hold my lenses for the E-7.

Cheerio,

Seth
