KiwiSnapz: Why get so worked up about a camera. A camera is just a light proof box with a lens and a timer function. The OLYMPUS LENS QUALITY at an affordable price is why I left canon and nikon after thirty years.
Every camera will have a niggle or bug for each of us. I keep asking why do we not have multi spot on the newer cameras. My t90 had it, my c5060 had it. Wouldn't it be just a firware upgrade?
The equipment has and will always change. All the gadgets and gizmos are fun/helpful but I hear little or nothing about using your intuition and not letting one of the miriad of "scene" modes do your thinking for you. Real photography is about the capture and control of light; It also requires some vision to get a finished shot that is appreciated. Enjoy and learn about the gear youv'e got and save those pennies for the next must have.

I think itsastickup you have lost sight of the point of interchangeable lens systems, you buy the lens and as the bodies improve you can upgrade all the while using the same lenses. Ask any serious photographer and they will all regale you with stories of that one special lens they own or once owned and regret getting rid of. If you are anything like me you always carry some form of camera even a phone camera is better than missing the shot. Keep the faith.

Good point Vince I hear what you are saying but I am very happy with the measly 12mp of my e5 and all my clients are very happy with the enlargments they received from me using my e500, (with good glass) admittedly I don't enlarge much bigger than a2. I do love the ultimate customisation of Olympus and hope that they continue along this same path.
