It may indeed be complex, but that news is also promising. In light of what you've discovered, who knows how much more refined the system may be in the E-5 replacement. I'm already toying with the idea of purchasing an OMD in addition to whatever DSLR offering exists this fall. But first I'd like either 2 of the new model or another E-5 to compliment the one I have now.


Right. Reading Oly's murky tea leaves doesn't allow a cohesive strategy for growing a system. A "pure" E-camera? A hybrid E/OMD?" An advanced OMD? All three? It especially makes lens selection a risky proposition.

One E-M5 feature I want to laud is the touchscreen focus/focus+shoot. I presumed it would be a useless gadget but instead, love it. I'd like to see it migrate to the E-body live view.
