E-5 successor?

I currently own an E-5 with several lenses. With my investment in glass. I hate just abandon Olympus, I love the color and lack of fussing I need to get pretty good photos.

I just think that with the financial mess that the crooks at the top did to Olympus it has crippled the development of any new full sized model. I think the E-5 is the end of the line. I've no interest in the micro line, my lenses will not work anyway. To me, this is a terrible thing for Olympus to have done, all my nice glass I couldn't use.

I'm strongly considering a Nikon D600 and the new 80~400mm zoom lens as I shoot mostly bird photography. I will look to see if I can rent a D600 with that lens to try for a weekend, unless Olympus has a new E series, I've spent my last dollar on Olympus gear.
