Re: The Olympus E-5 upgrade is a DSLR, no news until it's here

They've said officially that they don't believe the micro 4/3 MILC is a substitute for a Pro level camera that can utilize the HG and SHG lenses.

No, actually they said they are working on making Micro Four Thirds work better with the HG and SHG lenses.  They also said they are working on a Pro level micro four thirds camera.  Are they same?  We will have to wait and see.

Since they now use Sony sensors and have a deal with Sony, I would expect to see PDAF sensors on the next OMD.

I wouldn't expect an upgrade to the OMD within two to three years.

No, there will be a new OMD in the spring.

We'll just have to wait and see what Olympus does next. But it will be an E-x DSLR.

No, the new PENs are next, then a new OMD.  A DLSR would be last.  As you said Olympus does not have the resouces and with M43 selling like hotcakes, and the poor 4/3rds record, there is really only one choice where to put their money.
