Oly USA shows the E5 in stock.

Well, they did state that they would continue DSLR's 'without change'... and the E5 doesn't appear to have changed... so, technically speaking, they have adhered to that statement. A bit too literally, but they have adhered to it.

Last time I was at Yodobashi I still saw an E-5 on display and they are still being sold.

Having owned an E3 and used an E5, and now having an EM1, I think Olympus absolutely did the right thing. They couldn't compete with C/N in the DSLR arena, so they headed off in a new direction and appear to be doing quite well there.

Exactly and I do see people happily using their 43rds lenses on E-M1 bodies, so I guess some people like that new direction as well.

You want to give that up for a mirror and a prism? Not me. I like the direction they have gone in. It's not perfect, but the future looks a lot brighter than it did three years ago.

I definitely agree after using an OMD for a while now I could never go back to a mirror and prism.
