there are some real advantages to shooting with EVF -- the biggest being WYSIWYG viewing in any of the 'auto' exposure modes. Being able to preview WB, Exposure, DOF, live histogram, IBIS effect, etc. in the viewfinder is a great benefit.

All these things you listed make the possibility of a hybrid E-5 successor even more exciting that a straight DSLR. Imagine E-30-like size/weight, E-5-like built, stuffed with all these technological goodies plus couple more reserved for the flagship, even more refined IQ... if that's not salivation-inducing perspective, I don't know what is.

Now stop that!  Cruel and inhumane punishment to salivate for any extended period of time!  

Keep salivating (myself included); mayhaps we'll see something by the time my EM-5 bites the dust.

Oh and As much as i loved the e-5; for my needs, the em-5 is sooo much better.  Sold of my E-5 just in time before the EM-5 rumors cropped up, and I was very lucky to transition to EM-5 without additional cost.

I took it out in the rain; no problems.  Although it did require a battery pull to work again when i fell down holding it.

So yes the MUST be a higher level m43 camera to replace the E-5.
