Really looking forward to the Z2.8 update, it's going to really make me want to get back to using it again (I just hate the way it looks so don't tend to be inspired to use it much any more).
As for the P5 - I was never hugely into the Prophet 5's character so much, but I *love* u-he's approach to the emulation - sounds authentic, looks great but has enough visual cues from the original, has a resizable interface and modern affordances because of it's software nature - without throwing too much new stuff in to remove it too far from the original in character).
It's a vintage polysynth done right, and it would be so good to have other synths like this (not saying they will go in this direction) but a "certain silver-edged orange with multi-coloured buttons Japanese classic polysynth" done like this, and perhaps a Synthex, and some others would be great. "Emulations Done Right" (TM)...
Roland's JP8 sounds pretty good (yay!), but the interface is *awful* in just about every way (boo!)...
