Oly, perhaps a new player in this market segment

In the news here today, Oly claims to be working on a new pro body, apparently to replace the E-5. That would be a welcome addition to this market segment, perhaps keeping Nikon and Canon on the ball.

The E-5 wasn't all that interesting to me, when it was introduced, due to 11 pt AF and available lenses. Now, they have more lenses, like the 90-250 f/2.8 and their latest dslr, the OMD E-M5, has 35 AF points and 9 FPS, combined with a 2x crop factor and in-body image stabilization. The new Oly pro body should work quite well for action/sports and wildlife, assuming that it meets/exceeds previous specs.

Wow, are you kidding me, an effective 180-500 f/2.8, IS zoom? Yes, I'd be interested in something like that.
