Splash-resistant is not the same is using it in rain. And you're comparing olympus' "pro" model against Canon's advanced amateur model.

Agree, it's an unfair comparison, but marketing is always unfair. When the E-3 was released, it's direct competitor was the 40D, not the 1DIII, so it makes at least a bit more sense to compare these two. However, you can easily swap the 40D for a 400D and the marketing campaign still holds - albeit unfair and improper.

As I've said before, any manufacturer can be held in the spotlight if you normalize to their strengths. Marketing is no different.

but the E-3 is still the current top Oly model, i gather the 40D is discontinued and not been manufactured for a couple of years

trying to make more of it that it is ?

neither has E3 been manufactured for a few years and further
its odds on that 40D was still in production when the E3 batch was gone and done
