I will keep my order in place but if the camera does not show a large improvement over my E-520 in S-AF and C-AF it is going back and my 4/3rds lenses will be up for sale.

The price, with grip and adapter is just too high if the camera can not match-up with the competition. It really does not matter that I have 3 Olympus camer bodies and 5 4/3rds lenses, at 1800.00 bucks it must not lag behind in focusing speed.

Yes.  Olympus has presented us with an enigma:  finally a body with the new sensor that can AF reasonably fast with 4/3's lenses, but not large enough to comfortably support many SHG lenses or even the HG 50-200mm without the optional grip.  At this point, not a compelling argument to stay with Olympus if one owns these lenses.  And an answer to a question not asked.

Now, if they offered to drop the new sensor/processor into your E-5 for, say, $700, I think a path would be beaten to their door.
