Technology trumps magic every time

I have no problem with my 2.0 and 1.4 lenses and usable product up to 2500 iso with my E-5. I have shot many very usable shots in dim buildings and churches with wonderful results. Outside the golden period of sunrise or sunset I have never had a problem. Somehow the much maligned E-5 is still a very magical camera ...I guess you will be one of those guys running in the streets.

My main interest is bird/wildlife and I shoot with the ZD300mm /2.8.  Most bird shots  need to be cropped, and I'm using 1/1000 sec and faster. In anything other than good light the E-5 sensor produces  noise in shadows and even blue sky which becomes more noticeable in close crops, and needs a lot of work PP to remove. In those situations ISO 800 really is the best I can get out of the E-5. So yes I'll be happy with a new E-7 (or whatever) as it will extend the range of lighting situations in which I can shoot with my big lens
