Calm down

Yes there only a small difference in image quality from the E-30, but at least Oly have done their best with the exsisting sensor (ok it would have been nice to have a few more new features such as an electronic focus limiter), after all the E5 was only brought out because their new sensor and semi-pro spec m4/3 cameras and lenses were not ready and they are trying to keep some customers, not get new ones.

I'm no Oly fanboy but I might well buy the E-5, and looking at the fact it only has a small image quality improvement from my 620 doesn't bother me it's the camera as a whole which will make be buy it. If after that I don't like what Oly are doing then I will probably go of and by the D300s replacement.
