Hi Doux
Wow! They really are churning them out. I was only looking at the G5 over the weekend, wondering whether to upgrade or not. I shall wait for the G6 now to see how that is reviewed. One issue I shall be interested in is shutter lag. On the G3, I do find the shutter lag (293 ms) feels significant and it would be good to bring that down to nearer that of the Canon 7D (at 131 ms). 7fps is great (nearly twice as good as the G3).
I shall keep my eye on this one

OK Hobbes, i got the EPL5 with 9 fps, not sure how much is the shutter lag, but its really fast, but i am not very happy with it, because if you did not get the focus right (and that is very common in bird fotography) then you got 9 worthless frames, believe it or not the 3fps in the EPL1 were more convenient IMHO. also as the birds always moves, chances that many will also be OFF.

not that i am not happy with the upgrade, but some of the features do sounds WOW but in reality they are not that useful.

BTW the GH6 also looks promising, also some rumors about new EP5 from Olympus, which should be better then tiny EPL5 and with Wi Fi.

here they say :" maybe their very first fast f/2.8 MFT zoom" but will it be a long reach one, if it is 200 its nice, as with the internal digital 1.4TC it will give 560mm equivelent in the full frame
