I haven't been keeping up with release rumors. Where did you hear about the possible release of the E-P5?

I picked up an E-PL1 about 2 years ago as a lightweight alternative to my D700. For travelling, it's now become my preferred camera (I use my D700 for serious studio shoots or instances that require shallow DOF or high ISO performance). When the E-PL5 was first announced, I was thrilled with the fact that it had inherited the sensor and focusing speed of the E-M5, but was totally disappointed with the removal of the built-in flash. To me, the only reason for Olympus to remove it was to leave a selling point for the E-P series.

So if the E-P5 comes out with the same features of the E-P3 and the aforementioned E-M5 features, it would eliminate my pro/con review between the E-PL5 and the E-M5.
