After waiting and saving for an E30 + 14-54 II it has got to the stage where no one here in CZ stocks the kit. The lens is still available (for the moment).
Im gutted about this.. The E30 would fit my needs at a price i could consume.
So plan B would be to get the lens seperately and maybe another lens OR, put the remaining cash towards an E5.
Now i remember Godfrey saying on a previous post of mine "Fit a great lens even on an ancient E-1 and magic happens... !" this can be said for almost all cameras i guess. Now whilst lenses still seem to be in supply it would make sense to aquire a few new ones and then later get the E5 however, i think i read somewhere that Olympus will only continue to manufacture the E5 until the mirrorless system can equal what the DSLR can deliver.
This has me concerned as the new EP-3 is very impresive and if they do develop a micro 4/3rds PRO camera body soon then im assuming this will make the E5 obsolete.
So heres the question (finally i get to the point) What are your thoughts as to the time frame one would have to purchase an E5. I mean olympus could bring out the PRO m4/3rds body at the end of the year and its goodbye E5 and no more OVF bodys or do you think it will be a couple of years before the demise of the E5?
As i will have to go to plan B im hoping a couple of years before mirrorless rules the roost in the Olympus house.
