Mixed opinion so far....

First of all, they look good - but we have to wait until the d7000/60d results come out as those are the benchmark for the E-5.

I see no point comparing these to 2 yr old cameras. I am not in the megapixel race but do see paying money should buy you a competitive product by today's standards.

And E1 uses comparing it to the E1 and saying wow - great but makes no sense, it is bound to be better.

Olympus kind of deserve the negative press in someways for overpricing the E-5 esp compared to the D7000. yes yes I know weather sealing, dust proofing are good but those have been good since the E1 - no point resting on laurels earned 6 yrs ago.

And the E5 makes no sense to people like me who adopted olympus for size and E5 if I am not wrong is the heaviest body among the new lot - I am not sure how the SHG lenses compare to canikon in weight but should be reasonably heavy - the HG probably could edge out and be lighter but might be compensated by 200g of body weight ( say when compared to the K-5 ) ...

I have a PEN AND LOVE IT but haven't taken to using it with even the SG 4/3 lenses so far, leave alone HG lenses. Olympus please keep the EXXX alive with OVF or EVF but with a straight 4/3 mount and same performance ( better AF though ) as the 620.... and this is another reason ( IMHO ) that oly is getting -ve press say when compared to Panasonic ( who have a clearer vision )
