An E5-free zone...update your Oly DSLR

Some say that E-xxx and E-xx won't be updated. Hmm, I don't know. I think that Oly can't offer one DSLR for the next five years...something else has to stay. Which one(s)? I don't know.

What, in your opinion, would be good upgrades on your camera? I know we'd all like the best IQ, but what would you change, what would you keep, what would you add, feature-wise?

Mine: E30

Add, Change: I'd like to see a top notch (articulating) 3" screen, video as long as it doesn't cost too much, backlit buttons like on the 620. If it has video, I guess HDMI out would be good.

I shoot so much macro and after 1 hour or 1.5 hours maybe, it overheats. Some of that is probably due to the Texas heat. I'd like to be able to shoot longer.

And, I think it would be nice if they rated the shutter. I've shot 25K pictures in 6 months so I'd like to be able to compare that to the model we aren't talking about :).

Also let's get rid of the xD card in favor of SD.

Keep: BLM1, top display, grip.
Gear listed in profile under "plan."

Someone stop me before I buy again, please!
