Just a few more thoughts: 1. Olympus may well ignore my needs and so my hard-earned will be left in the wallet or spent elsewhere, 2. Olympus have a track record of poor corporate strategy - like most photo industry companies - but they are possibly worse than most, with the exception of Kodak and one or two others, 3. If the success of the Pen series grinds to a halt, then the Camera Division will probably close - which would be really sad - as the E-5 will not be enough to keep them going, 4. You can do street photography with any camera. Street photographers split into two groups - active and passive. The latter group wait for stuff to come to them and can use anything; quite a few use 5"x4" or larger but these are mostly on the other side of the Atlantic. I have used medium format SLR on a tripod successfully but I tend to take different pictures then to when I use a more mobile hand-held camera. 5. Whatever genre you are involved with but especially on the street, you will tend to not want the equipment to get in the way, be a problem, a handicap. Twenty-five years ago this year, I proved to my satisfaction that a viewfinder camera was my first choice for street photography - least problematic, becoming part of me, one with my eye, and, 6. This week I spent some time trying to shoot on the street with a digi-compact with only a screen for viewfinding: there were severe limitations.
