I cannot imagine in the moment to replace the E-5 with either PEN or OM-D, main reason being lenses ... pka:)

If your argument is that the E-5 is better then the EM-5 because of the lenses, you may be right (I've never used it so I don't know). There are lots of cameras that are a lot bigger then the EM-5 that are better the the EM-5.

The whole point of the m4/3 line is to trade a lot of size for some IQ and handling. With the EM-5 (and perhaps some of the other current m4/3 models), it looks like the IQ and handling you give up has become much less while the IQ has gotten a lot closer.

But for someone who doesn't care about size there are certainly better choices then m4/3. For someone who doesn't care about size and already has a bunch of 4/3 lenses, the E-5 might be the perfect camera. Unfortunately for those people, it looks like there aren't enough of them to keep the 4/3 line going.
