Check out the previous post from today "motor oil wear test rankings" there are 129 oils ranked per the wear test explained in the attached article. I believe all three of your oils are listed. Decide for yourself if you feel the testing has merit.

How many miles do you have on your oil now? If you KNOW you're going to do the cam change in the next month or so, i'd just wait. No since in spending $80 on a oil change now, just to empty it all out for the cam swap.

5k on good synthetic oil is NOTHING. You do know that the better synthetics are good for well over 15k miles? That does depend on how you drive it but in general, it's good for a lot longer than most think. If you're one of those people that are anal about changing their oil after 5k miles, then by all means change it so you can sleep at night. If you asking if your engine is going to explode by not changing till your cam swap, you'll be absolutely fine.
