O baby! Bring on the army of used E-5's !! Ebay, here I come.

I was thinking that the camera would have the opposite effect.  In contrast to the E-3 and E-5 upgrades, it is unclear if the EM-1 is truly an upgrade/substitute  to the E-5.  I think we will know more in the months ahead as people use it and become aware of its strengths and weaknesses.

People who currently own an E-5 might buy a EM-1, but may not part with the E-5 until they are sure it is a substitute/upgrade over their E-5.  I think the nature photographers are going to have a struggle with this.  I think the landscape will jump more readily.  Letting go of the last FT camera and DSLR won't come easy.
