Re: OM-D E-M5 vs E-5 (build quality)

Build quality is not everything, but the lacking build of the E-M5 is a sure indication that this is squarely a middle-range camera (and at the price - how could it otherwise?) and that we are - one hopes - still to see a much more substantial professional model.

Olympus stated when the EM-5 was introduced that it was not a professional camera, and that one would come later.
