Going crazy waiting for Amazon to ship my new Olympus OMD
I am so stoked for the new Olympus OMD EM-5.
This looks like the perfect upgrade to my PEN E-P2 that I'm currently using (and like a lot.)
So far, from the reviews, videos and images I've seen, the image quality looks great, video is stunning, image stabilization and auto-focus are terrific, and the camera still manages to stay very small and compact.
If Amazon doesn't ship mine soon, I swear I'm going to have an aneurysm.

I almost cancled a few saute' pans they have been sitting on for a week, finally shipped today. WTF are they doing there? Surfing the net?

Any way you have access to a .edu email address? Sign up for a free year of Prime and $39 prime/year after that. Most of my stuff comes to MT next day with the 2-day option.
The OM-D looks like an awesome camera and is one of the first, "mature", MFT cameras IMO.

B&H had it in stock today. I ordered it before they sold out.
Should have it in hand next week. I'm already invested in m4/3 lenses, and I really liked the old OM film cameras, so it was an easy decision for me.

Kai from DigitalRev's review doesn't make me too excited about it...

My sautee' pans came a day early. I think they troll this board.

And that age comment is just ridiculous. I know a 17 year old kid who shoots nothing but film, mostly medium format and every single camera he owns came out long before he was born.

The camera is built around a 16MP Four Thirds sensor, almost certainly the same one seen in Panasonic's DMC-G3.
That's what I keep hearing. Maybe you have some proof it isn't but it has been talked about a lot on many sites. So maybe he is parroting what he heard on that tiny slip from a reputable site. Such a travesty, he obviously knows shit!!!
I guarantee he has had more cameras go through his hands and run them through their paces than the majority of the population. I take his word over most things than I would the average TGR mag.

And in case that was offensive, here is a review that compares it to the nex-7 and x-pro.
