i don't think they'll throw much into any Dslr arena if anything at all, after leaving the range well alone for 3 years it makes no sense to release a bunch of new bodies when people have either migrated to m4/3rds or other brands

That's not an optimistic view for Olympus DSLRs. It's been just over 2 years since the release of the E-5. The latest announcement from Terada at Olympus is they will continue to develop DSLRs aimed at entry level and Pro level.

No thought exists without an image. Socrates

it's not that the E-5 will be replaced by something, i can't see it being a Dslr or more than 1 line up of Dslrs(which means i am totally wrong for saying it)I honestly thought that a mirrorless camera would be released after an E-7 that would AF all lenses equally, but maybe they will skip the E-7 and introduce a new type of camera for 4/3rds users
