For my use, I like the size and weight of the E-5. I can't see how they'd fit all of the easy access creative controls and a swivelling LCD on a smaller body that's as rugged and weather-proof as the E-5.

Well, Pentax proved with the K-7/K-5 that it can be done, didn't they?

and even Panasonic's first try w/ GH3 was not bad

If this logic is developed just a bit more. Just think, where in the market could Olympus launch a new DSLR, that could compete successfully on price and specification.

That is weather resistant bodies and Full HD video for a start!

Entry.........£500..........E-470         V      Pentax K-30.

Mid.............£850.........E-650         V      Pentax K5 II.

Advanced....£2000......E-6             V      Various Canon and Nikon FULL FRAME bodies.

Sorry about using Pentax DSLR's as the yard stick for the lower end of the market, but they are seriously good cameras.

In my heart I am a Oly fan, but logic has directed me to Pentax!

Wish I could be more upbeat for the true believers out there.
