I saw a guy buying old Nikon D2x (despite their being a D90 at the same price point) and he got outstanding build quality and an ancient sensor.  Why do it?  To me, it's like someone who once had money, who still insists on driving around in a rusting, broken down old Cadillac (as if to say, "Hey, I once was on top of the world")  instead of just getting a decent economy car.  Those of you who can would dump the E-5 in 2 seconds if a new body with the OM-D sensor showed up, even if it wasn't built as well.  After all, many of you sold your E-1's (which was better built than the E-5) in order to get the E-5 and a better sensor.

I don't see the point of your post in this discussion. Of course I would upgrade tomorrow if a similar professional body with a much better sensor is released, but only if it does not compromise on the other (usability, photographic performance, viewfinder, etc) aspects of the E-5 that continue to be great, regardless of sensor.
