Olympus has just announced their new flagship digital SLR today, the Olympus E-5. The new E-5 introduces a few changes and improvements here and there (some of which you’ve probably already seen in Olympus’ recent consumer digital SLRs); none of which are particularly earth-shaking. But nevertheless, here’s what’s up with the Olympus E-5:
