We might be holding off because we use vShield edge and a third party equivalent of vShield app. There is still an issue with ESXi hosts PSODS in 5. Will probably go to 4.1 Update 2 in the mean time.
We have been having some issues with some remote ESXi hosts that keep disconnecting for sometime now. We have a ticket open with VMware and at this point they are stating that it is a bug and will be addressed in in upcoming patch. VMware has no details as to when the patch will be released. Paul found the following VMWare KB and we are going to test and see if it is at all related.

Scotts Lowes Mastering vSphere 5 book is out. If this book is anything like Mastering vSphere 4 it will be an awesome resource. I just bought the kindle version for just under $30 dollars. Not a bad price you can order it here: http://www.amazon.com/Mastering-VMware-vSphere-5-ebook/dp/B005RBAA1Q/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1318088817&sr=1-1
I will let you know what I think after I start reading.
