Seriously, are you guys photographers or industry analysts, not in the least interested in photography itself?? How on earth does perspective of a new body make you all sad, bitter, doubtful and creates this endless flurry of threads full of desperation? Either 1) you are happy with your current camera and wait for the next one eagerly, or 2) you are not happy with what this brand offers and should just change it and stop torturing yourself and others or 3) you are subjected to chronic depressions and won't be happy no matter what in which case you should tell us so we know it's about you and not Olympus.


We buy equipment in order to photograph. Equipment is not cheap. The usefulness of equipment in five years time is not irrelevant. Thinking about the future is important if you are working on a budget.

Yup. So far few cameras hold their value as well as E-5. You were saying...?


How does thinking of usefulness of your equipment (presumably lenses) make you ask "why?" when you hear  talk of a new DSLR? Won't it make your equipment more/longer useful?

So I'll have to ask again: how come talk of a new camera makes you doubtful instead of cheerful?
