The Pen i bought for my wife (EPM1), nice walk around camera.

I agree the EM1 will be problaby a step forwards in terms of iq,iso. Have to turn the switch in my head

Since you have the 12MP E-30 for a DSLR anyway (though with IQ inferior to the E-5 thanks to Olympus's AA filter obsession back then), it might not be a bad move. I don't think we can fully predict how much of a true replacement for a DSLR the E-M1 is, at this point. First impressions from people like DPR look positive though - it will be a big step up, in terms of AF, from existing Micro Four Thirds kit.

You don't mention what Pen camera you have, but if you've never played with raw files from the 16MP sensor, you might be in for a bit of a revelation, especially if you like to shoot in complex light and push the files around quite a bit.
