Outstanding but Expensive

This is indeed a great camera, but much more than I really needed. I just wanted a second Olympus DSLR body as a backup to my E-520. But Olympus no longer makes any other DSLR so I bit the bullet and got this. (The originally much cheaper E-620 is still available online, but for a whole lot more money than the E-5. I can't imagine who would buy that when he can get the E-5 for a lot less!) Oh...

Excellent with good light

VEry good upgrade

I upgraded from the E-30. It is top of the Olympus DSLR line without the top of the line price of the competitors. I can hardly think of situations where the full sensor and the higher mps would be worth the difference of price. I think the E-5 gets a little lost in the crowd. Built in image stabilization and waterproofing are big pluses.
