All these things you listed make the possibility of a hybrid E-5 successor even more exciting that a straight DSLR. Imagine E-30-like size/weight, E-5-like built, stuffed with all these technological goodies plus couple more reserved for the flagship, even more refined IQ... if that's not salivation-inducing perspective, I don't know what is.

I agree completely! The OM-D is almost irresistable as it is - the prospects of a slightly beefed-up successor (or even a new model pitched at a higher price range), together with the new EVF and a solution to better autofocusing would be utterly enticing.

I have no delusions that there is a future in conventional SLRs, and such a model would satisfy my needs completely. The E-M5 comes very close, had the focusing been better.
