To me a more logical upgrade path would be e-520/e-620 to the e-30

i don't think there is a whole lot of points to upgrade from E-520.
but if you do, you will get:

1. more AF points
2. swivel lcd screen
3. slightly smaller body
4. slightly bigger viewfinder
5. backlit buttons

Well, I did participate on that other thread.

Personally, I am disappointed with the 620. I say hold off, and wait until Oly releases a SLR with the same TruepicV processing that's on the EP1. 620 is too noisy.

he means the picture. It is not performing well in low light.

I just "borrowed" from my dad the E510 I gave to him after I bought my E620. Kind of looking forward to using the E510 again. :)

This. Plus I'd like to have some HD video to play around with using the SLR lenses.

I chose the E520 pretending that I wouldn't do a lot of low-light photography. I should be more honest with my needs in the future.

Also, E520 body again please. This is primarily what swayed me away from the Canon 450D. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I was waiting for the Pentax K-x as my first SLR, partly for the video & burst speed, but also for auto HDR. I've heard that the E620 & E30 have some kind of automatic bracketing overlay - is this similar to HDR or something quite different?

Can you expand on the bolded part? What do you normally shoot?

When I first got interested in DSLR's, I wanted to shoot stuff indoors (among other things), even moving subjects, without a flash. I was very picky about noise too. It took me a while, but I finally realized I needed a full frame DSLR to get that kind of performance. Since I wasn't willing to pay extra or put up with the increased bulk, I've scaled down my expectations and settled for cropped sensor DSLR's... with flash guns.
