Re: How is it "positively cheap"

If you already own any Olympus DSLR you have at least one lens, at a minimum the 14=42 or the 14-54 or 12-60.  I suspect that most also have a second lens like the 40-150 or 70-300 or 50-200.   Currently your choice would be to buy an OMD kit (currently $1300 with adaptor) with the older EVF or the E P5 (with adaptor $1600) and get very slow focusing with any FT lens.  Instead if the new camera has a better EVF than the OMD, a larger integrated grip, and has 100% compatibiity with the FT lens (new sensor) for $1500, which would you buy.  Personally since I own 5 Olympus FT lenses and E 510 ad E5, the choice is obvious for me and I will preorder the new camera and be glad that it is less expensive than my current E5.  I will also keep the E5 and probably still use it frequently, but when I travel and go on long walks, a smaller size than the E5 would not be so bad.
